The Arsenal first team have strangely been given an inspirational talk by French actor Sebastien Foucan ahead of their upcoming clashes with Crystal Palace and Monaco.
Foucan, who pioneered freerunning and says people should “be an inspiration for others and look for positive environments”, was invited to give a motivational talk to the entire Gunners first team.
Maybe it was just a very right back targeted speech but both Hector Bellerin and Mathieu Debuchy took to Twitter to express their gratitude to the 40 year old for his words of wisdom.

Just why the squad needed such a motivational speech ahead of a run of the mill Premier League match with Palace is unclear. Are we that fearful of Handsome Pards?
You’d surely think the team would more likely need Foucan’s inspiring words before taking to the field at Old Trafford in our upcoming FA Cup quarterfinal given how terrible our record is there.
But hopefully, his rallying cry won’t have fallen on deaf ears and it can inspire the boys to win back to back trophies this season.
