Photos: Ozil, Giroud make a splash as Arsenal relax in Singapore
Arsenal stars Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud take a breather from training to relax in a swimming pool with their Gunners team-mates
Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud made a splash as the Arsenal squad took a break from training and hit the swimming pool in Singapore on Wednesday.
Some of Arsene Wenger’s men were involved in their 4-0 victory over Singapore Select XI but Germany international Ozil didn’t feature in the opening game of their tour.
But the World Cup winner still got to join his team-mates for a dip in the pool as the Arsenal players unleashed their swimming shorts.
Giroud, in particular, was in a jovial mood as he indulged in a couple of spectacular dives, perhaps in preparation for the new Premier League season.
English quartet Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere and Dan Crowley enjoyed a game of headers with a beach ball, presumably borrowed from some Sunderland supporters.
Santi Cazorla’s venture into the swimming pool appeared to spark funny scenes amongst the squad, who were perhaps keen to keep the pint-sized midfielder in the shallow end.
