Arsenal to Remind Players of 'Responsibilities' After Video of Nitrous Oxide Use

Arsenal to Remind Players of 'Responsibilities' After Video of Nitrous Oxide Use

Arsenal said Friday (Dec 7) they will "remind players of their responsibilities" after a video emerged that appears to show a number of stars inhaling nitrous oxide.

"The players will be spoken to about this and reminded of their responsibilities as representatives of the club", read a statement on Arsenal's official website.

The France global scored 17 goals in all competitions last term following his then club-record move from Lyon, despite struggling with injuries.

Gunners stars Henrikh Mkhitaryan, 29, and Shkodran Mustafi, 26, are also apparently in the footage but are not seen with the balloons.

Nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas or "hippy crack".


As per The Telegraph, it is known to cause feelings of euphoria, hallucinations and fits of giggles and laughter - and one can even pass out if too much is taken - which is what appears to happen to Guendouzi in the clip.

Other players such as Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker have been seen using the gas in the past, with the City fullback apologising for using the substance back in 2013.

While it is not illegal to possess the drug, it is illegal to give away or sell.

After Arsenal players such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mesut Ozil were reportedly caught doing "hippy crack" on video at the start of the season, the club has now released a statement regarding the incident.
