Arsenal speedster wants to be the best

Theo Walcott is a relatively simple aim in his career - to be remembered as the fastest man to ever grace the game.

The Arsenal winger is undoubtedly one of the quickest - if not the quickest - players in the world at the present time and has the ability to petrify defences with his frightening pace.

Walcott has demonstrated time and again that speed is his greatest asset, but showed at the start of the season his ability in front of goal will be something to reckoned with if developed further.

However, for now, the 22-year-old - who made his Arsenal return against Blackburn last weekend - wants to continue showing clean pair of heels to opposing defenders.


Asked how he would like to be remembered, Walcott told Arsenal TV: "Just the player who was the quickest on the planet."

"That, and one who gets the fans out of their seat, who entertains them by scoring goals. That’s what I want to be remembered for, and the nice guy I am hopefully, staying away from front pages of newspapers."
