Dietmar Hamann admits he's an Arsenal fan

Ex-Liverpool midfielder Didi Hamann enjoyed a successful spell on Merseyside, featuring in 191 league games and winning the League Cup, FA Cup and playing a major part in the club's Champions League Final victory in 2005. 

Not a true Red 

So it came as a shock to most Liverpool supporters when Hamann recently claimed that he was, at heart, a Gunner rather than a Red.

Speaking exclusively to radio station TalkSport, following the Gunners' exit in the Champions League on Thursday evening, the German revealed: “I’m a secret Arsenal fan. Whenever they are playing on a Sunday or a Tuesday night, I’ll be watching them. I find it very hard not to watch them.

"I just love the way they play, they are excellent to watch." 

Although Liverpool have been in equally fine form recently, it will come as a definite blow to know that one of their past stars has admitted to preferring the Gunners' playing style... 

Criminal Exit from Champions League 

Despite his love of Arsenal's playing style, Hamann was equally quick to point to their "criminal" exit from the Champions League last-16 for the fifth year running. According to the German, the Gunners boast a squad "only one or two players away from being contenders for the Champions League". 

With the likes of Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud in the starting XI, Hamann believes that, although Monaco "deserved to go through", it was "criminal" for a team of Arsenal's caliber to go out against the French club.
