Arsenal star Oxlade-Chamberlain responds to Man United legend’s criticism

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hits back at Roy Keane following the Manchester United legend's criticism of Arsenal

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has hit back at Roy Keane following the Manchester United legend’s recent criticism of Arsenal.

The former United midfielder made headlines last week when he was quoted as saying that the Arsenal squad were more interested in selfies than winning titles.

Arsenal underlined their intention to challenge for top honours this season as they beat Chelsea 1-0 in Sunday’s Community Shield clash at Wembley.

And Oxlade-Chamberlain, who scored the only goal of the game in the 24th minute against the defending Premier League champions, has insisted that Arsene Wenger’s men are determined to win silverware this season.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is quoted as saying by ESPN: “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. You can see that on the pitch when we’re playing, through the season.

“A lot of people don’t see when we lose and go through tough times how upset and disappointed we are. We’ve always wanted to win trophies and in the last years we’ve won a few. This season we want to go that one better.”

The 21-year-old midfielder scored one goal and made one assist in 23 Premier League games for Arsenal last season.

Arsenal, who finished third and won the FA Cup last season, kick off their Premier League campaign with a home clash against West Ham United at Emirates Stadium this weekend.
