Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain names his most talented current or former teammates

Published 6 Comments

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed the four most talented players that he has played with at Arsenal - but there was not even an honourable mention for the likes of Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere or even Thierry Henry.

In an interview with the rapper Lethal Bizzle - we know, right? - for BT Sport, per the Mirror, the England international was asked to name the best player he has ever played with.

“Robin [van Persie] is up there, Santi [Cazorla], Alexis [Sanchez], Mesut [Ozil]. I’ve been lucky enough to have quite a few, yeah.”

Oxlade-Chamberlain was then asked by Mr. Bizzle to name the worst player he’s ever played against - but the mild-mannered 22-year-old was wise to swerve that particular question.

We can only assume, though, that the winger momentarily forgot that he briefly played alongside Arsenal legend Henry when asked to name his most talented current or former teammate.

The Ox forgot about Henry

The retired French superstar returned to Arsenal on loan in January 2012 and played alongside Oxlade-Chamberlain in several matches.

Indeed, just last month the former Southampton starlet revealed that Henry gave him some invaluable words of wisdom before a game against Manchester United three years ago.

Van Persie deserved his mention

Some Arsenal fans may also feel a little perturbed by Oxlade-Chamberlain’s decision to name Van Persie before Cazorla, Alexis or Ozil.

The former Gunners’ captain ruined his Arsenal legacy in the summer of 2012 by leaving the north London outfit for Premier League rivals Manchester United.

However, there’s no denying that Van Persie is one of Arsenal’s best players of the past 10 years - in his final two seasons with the Gunners, the Dutch striker netted an impressive 59 goals.
