Gun­ners caught off­side

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

LON­DON. — Arse­nal said yesterday they will “re­mind play­ers of their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties” af­ter a video emerged that ap­pears to show a num­ber of stars in­hal­ing ni­trous ox­ide.

Play­ers in­clud­ing Me­sut Ozil, Pierre-Em­er­ick Aubameyang, Alexan­dre La­cazette and Mat­teo Guen­douzi fea­ture in the footage, which ap­pears to come from CCTV footage and was pub­lished by the Sun news­pa­per yesterday.

In a state­ment, Arse­nal said: “The play­ers will be spo­ken to about this and re­minded of their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties as representatives of the club.”

Ni­trous ox­ide, also known as laugh­ing gas or “hippy crack”, is freely avail­able al­though it is tech­ni­cally il­le­gal to sell it for recre­ational pur­poses.

In the video, which re­port­edly comes from a Lon­don venue shortly be­fore the start of the cur­rent sea­son, other Gun­ners play­ers in­clud­ing Hen­rikh Mkhi­taryan can be seen re­ject­ing the of­fer to use the gas. — AFP.
