Ostersunds Tease Europa League Opponents Arsenal with Igloo Dressing Rooms

Ostersunds Tease Europa League Opponents Arsenal with Igloo Dressing Rooms

Arsenal are preparing to switch focus to the Europa League this week when they travel to Sweden to take on Ostersunds, and the minnows have joked about the sub-zero temperatures that’ll greet them.

The Gunners will make their way to Scandinavia for the last-32 first-leg of the competition, fresh from losing Saturday’s North London derby against Spurs 1-0 at Wembley.

And the Swedish side have warned Arsenal they can expect a similarly cold reception this week, by poking fun at the chilly conditions they can expect.

Ostersunds tweeted Arsenal an image of an igloo dressing room with their shirts hung up – which probably made a few of the club’s pampered stars panic for a minute or two:

We’re happy to confirm that Ostersunds actually have really dressing rooms and don’t get changed in an igloo.

Imagine if they did, though. They could just make away teams change in an igloo – what an effective mind game that would be!
