ARSENAL NOT HAPPY WITH FLAMINI OVER CUTTING SLEEVES FROM JERSEY

Saturday, November 30, 2013

Reports have emerged claiming that Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini will back down over his sleeve battle.



The Daily Mail claims that the French midfielder found himself at the centre of controversy for cutting the sleeves off his jersey — and in doing so flouted a directive Arsenal players have respected since the 1920s.

It is said that the majority of the Arsenal squad back Arsene Wenger’s stance.

Arsenal consider the 29 year old’s sleeve-cutting to be an oversight rather than a challenge to the club and there is a belief the issue has been resolved after the rule was explained to Flamini.

Former Arsenal player Brian Talbot sought permission from the board to roll up his sleeves in the Eighties, such was his desire to toe the line.
