The Ox speaks out about van Persie by TS
With endless amounts of talent its not surprising that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has become an instant fan favorite. Only signing last season, he’s already being dubbed as the next big thing for Arsenal and England.
During an interview with Talksport The Ox had this to say about the departure of Robin van Persie,
“There was a lot of speculation around Robin. He was a massive player for us last year there is no hiding that. But we have definitely got the squad to cope with that. Olivier Giroud was top goalscorer in the French league last year. Lukas Podolski has been prolific for a number of years and has 100 caps for Germany which isn’t bad. We’ve definitely got the squad to deal with it. These things happen in football all the time. You’ve just got to get on with it and move forward and I think the team is strong enough to deal with these situations.”
A fresh and positive outlook on the season to come, combined with a modest outlook on the world, its no wonder that he’s risen to become one of the stars in the team. Recently uncovered as one of the faces for Fifa 2013 just shows that his abilities are being noticed outside the club as well.
The Ox is currently injured and missed the opening match of the season for Arsenal.
The winger picked up an ankle injury in a pre season match against Cologne but is expected to make a full recovery within the week and hopefully before our match against Stoke.
