Mertesacker- Gunners Debt Collector

Per Mertesacker is Arsene Wenger’s debt-collector-in-chief.

A photograph of Arsenal’s fine structure has been leaked to the media. And it is understood that German international defender Mertesacker is the muscle Wenger deploys to collect the dosh when Gunners players step out of line.

Thanks to furtive insiders like The Secret Footballer, fans are beginning to learn more about the hidden aspects of the football world.

Clubs are notoriously protective when it comes to what goes on in the dressing room. And so Arsenal are understandably unhappy that the fines they level for various misdemeanours have been made public.

"The pictures are genuine. We understand that they were taken by a friend of a member of staff during a private visit to the training ground,” an Arsenal spokesman explained.

"The pictures are genuine. We understand that they were taken by a friend of a member of staff during a private visit to the training ground.

"The manager was made aware of the pictures being published, and we are very disappointed. We will review our procedures."
