Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has spoken out regarding his comment about Nicklas Bendtner, a comment which went viral online while the England star was conducting a Q&A in Singapore.
The 21-year-old was asked which former legend would he love the chance to play with at this present moment; to which he answered: “Probably Nicklas Bendtner.”

The room, as expected, found the answer extremely hilarious, and the clip went viral with many praising the Arsenal man for his sense of humour.
However, Oxlade-Chamberlain has sought to explain himself through his Twitter page while also sending a warm message to the former Arsenal man who returns to the Emirates Stadium for the first time this weekend.
My @bendtnerb52 comment was a bit of fun and has been blown out of proportion Looking forward to seeing him this weekend @ the Emirates Cup!

Arsenal transfer news
Villarreal and Lyon make up the other teams in the competition, and we’ll be looking to clinch the trophy for the first time in five years.
