After an impressive Sydney tour with two victories, the Gunners have now landed in China where they’ll be playing against their Premier League rivals Chelsea and Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. The Arsenal squad received an epic reception at the Airport by the Chinese fans earlier today.
Fans could be heard cheering the names of the Arsenal players on top of their voice and the players too looked amused by the enormous amount of support, and were seen capturing or recording the moment.
Oliver Girould was quoted saying “I’ve never been to China, so it’s going to be a new adventure for us and me” which shows even the players are excited about the tour.
The Gunners will be playing Bayern on 19th in Shanghai and Chelsea on 22nd at Beijing. The fixtures here are way too difficult than what they faced in Australia, so there would be some interesting contests to watch out for and pure entertainment for the fans.
It would be a great moment for the Chinese football fans seeing the football giants of the world face each other on their soil. With all the fuss about Alexis Sanchez going on, it would be interesting how things turn out on this tour for Arsene Wenger.
Check out the reception below –
