Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played a joke on former team-mate Nicklas Bendtner at a recent Q & A session.

When asked what Gunners' hero of the past he'd most like to return to the club now, instead of saying Ian Wright, Thierry Henry or Charlie George, cheeky Oxlade-Chamberlain replied:

"Erm, probably Nicklas Bendtner."

The crowd then burst out into laughter.

The Danish striker Bendtner scored just 47 goals in a total of 171 appearances for the Gunners 2004 and 2014.

The 27-year-old now plays for Wolfsburg, after leaving the north Londoners on a free last summer.

He will bump into Oxlade-Chamberlain very soon, however, as Wolfsburg face the Gunners at the friendly Emirates Cup tournament next Sunday.


The Gunners have won both of their pre-season games this season, beating a Singapore Select XI 4-0 and defeating Everton 3-1 at the Barclays Asia Trophy in Singapore.

Arsene Wenger's side face Lyons in the Emirates Cup on Saturday before Bentdner's grand return.
