Judging by public perception, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seems to be the lifeblood in terms of our dressing room dynamics. And his latest episode has seen him name Mathieu Flamini as our best bet for a successful presidential election – while discrediting Calum Chambers’ credentials for a similar role.
Speaking to our official YouTube channel, Oxlade-Chamberlain detailed the role Flamini takes up when the squad go out for their team-bonding sessions and claimed that the Frenchman is an authoritative figure.
Given that Per Mertesacker collects the fines in the dressing room for Arsene Wenger (via the Daily Mail) and the fact that he’s our vice-captain, it was rather surprising that the German didn’t gain Oxlade-Chamberlain’s vote.
Arsenal transfer news
Oxlade-Chamberlain celebrates his 22nd birthday on Saturday and this season should be the one which sees the speedster blossom into the player we all know he’s capable of becoming.
The former Saints star possesses all the qualities a professional footballer can dream to have, hopefully, he can now shift his mentality and transform into a player determined to make a difference in each game.
- Arsenal told ‘no less than £50m’ for top defensive transfer target
- Arsenal keen to sign 16th best ranked Premier League stopper
- Arsenal keeping tabs on €40m Italy star after ‘outstanding’ season
