Arsenal Stars Hit Back At Roy Keane Over 'Selfie' Comments

There's too many Arsenal players interested in selfies, I think, whatever they are.

Usually in the run up to the new season, doubts are being thrown around about Arsenal's experience, their lack of depth or something else that Arsene Wenger just hasn't got right to mount a serious title challenge. This year, the given wisdom seems to be that, following their impressive end to last season, Arsenal are in with a serious shout this year.

Roy Keane, as we all know, is not one to follow given wisdom. For him, the Arsenal squad's proclivity for taking selfies will inevitably see them edged out of the title race once more. Whether you think there's anything in that or not may depend on your personal feeling towards Keane's unique brand of punditry but it's fair to say Arsenal's players don't agree with him.


Speaking after the Community Shield win over Chelsea, Aaron Ramsey gave a rather blunt, if uninspiring, response to the Ireland assistant manager.

I think we're more then capable of [winning the league] and I hope we can prove him wrong this season.

Perhaps it's a testament to Roy Keane's legacy that such a laughable statement is being taken seriously by the Arsenal squad but nonetheless, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has also addressed Keane's doubts today and he has done so by pretty much calling Keane an out of touch old man (okay we're paraphrasing).

It’s a new era, isn’t it? Some people do it, some don’t. We’re serious about winning trophies. Personally, and I can speak for the rest of the squad, we’ve been serious every single year I’ve been at the club about winning trophies.

Now who's looking forward to Keane's reaction when Arsenal inevitably fall short of a title win once more?
