The England international was pictured smoking a cigarette in a national newspaper in the early hours of Thursday morning and Wenger who has always branded players as role models in the society cited his disapproval of his midfielder’s behavior.

Arsenal will be wary of West Bromich Albion in their away fixture this weekend after the home side beat Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend.
