Arsenal boss reveals club prankster
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger shares who he believes is the funniest player in the Gunners dressing room
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is the funniest player in the Gunners squad, with Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner coming a close second.
Wenger was asked to select the club's most humorous star during a question and answer session on Twitter yesterday, with Szczesny picked out for special attention after developing a reputation as a prankster during his formative years at the Emirates.
Bendtner was also deemed worthy of a mention, while other practical jokers such as Lukas Podolski and Emmanuel Frimpong failed to make the cut.
When asked who the class clown was amongst his first-team squad Wenger responded: "That's difficult, I would say Wojciech, he likes a joke. Bendtner as well."
Szczesny has become famed for his comedy in the Arsenal dressing room, which most recently saw him send a friendly warning to Poland striker Robert Lewandowski ahead of the Champions League double-header against Borussia Dortmund.
The 23-year-old also hosted a series of challenges against Gunners colleagues on the club's official website last season, which included him going up against Brazilian full-back Andre Santos in a Buzzwire game to test slight of hand.
