The Liverpool players celebrated Chinese New Year and the Year of the Dog with a special challenge this week… but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain didn’t exactly have the best time.
The Ox, along with Alberto Moreno, Danny Ings and Loris Karius took part in the challenge, as each player took on a dog obstacle course with man’s best friend.
Moreno was crowned the winner after the thoroughly entertaining competition, however, it was Oxlade-Chamberlain’s struggles that really came to the fore.
First off, the former Arsenal midfielder was greeted with a loud bark by his K9 companion… not the best start.
Then, the Ox fails to score past a dog keeping goal… not really surprising considering he’s only scored four times this season.
And finally, his dog refuses to obey his instructions during the obstacle course:
"Ingsy, you're a very harsh critic!" ?

Better stick to the day job, eh Alex!
Despite his dog-related struggles, Chamberlain was part of the Liverpool squad that thumped Porto 5-0 on Wednesday night… every cloud!
