Kieran Gibbs admits he channeled his inner House of Pain when he discovered the club had signed Mesut Ozil.
The American-Irish-American hip-hop group urged everyone to ‘get out your seats and jump around’ and Arsenal’s left back did exactly that.
“Jumped in the air,” he said when asked what his reaction to the £42.5m deal was. “But you don’t even have to be an Arsenal fan to jump in the air.
“When you find out that a world-class player like that is coming to England you’re going to jump for joy even if you’re a Tottenham fan. Well, maybe not a Tottenham fan, I won’t push it too far.
“In the end we and the fans have got what we want: a really good addition.”
It’s unlikely that anyone associated with Sp*rs, whose ‘strategic partnership’ allowed Arsenal to do the Ozil deal, would be doing any jumping at all. Apart from off cliffs and tall buildings, but then who cares about that?
Gibbs was asked if he’d make a special poem to commemorate the record breaking deal, but despite having more rhymes than the bibles got psalms, he politely declined the offer before serving the guy’s ass like John McEnroe.23,936 views
