Video: Arsenal’s Per Mertesacker Awkwardly Laughs During Press Conference

Arsenal captain Per Mertesacker added to his side’s ongoing woes today – by giving one of the most awkward pre-match press conference displays you’re ever likely to see.

The German World Cup winner has been made to bide his time on the bench for the Gunners this season, after starting the campaign injured and failing to win back his starting berth from compatriot Shkodran Mustafi.

However, when it comes to official appearances, being the club captain means Mertesacker is required to fill in when needed, and he appeared before the cameras today ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League tie against Bayern Munich.

After losing the first-leg 5-1 in Bavaria, Arsene Wenger’s future at the club has been called into question, but when that was brought up by a journalist today, Mertesacker could only burst out laughing:

How awkward, eh?

We have absolutely no idea what he was thinking. Perhaps he just misjudged the situation – badly.

What do you make of the clip?
