Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Has to Explain That He Wasn't out Shopping in Dubai

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterMarch 14, 2014

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had to explain the concept of Throwback Thursday to his fans when he uploaded a picture of himself shopping in Dubai with teammates.

The 20-year-old is with Kieran Gibbs and Carl Jenkinson in the picture.

Having just been dumped out of the Champions League and with a crucial Premier League game against North London rivals Tottenham at the weekend, fans were worried that Oxlade-Chamberlain's mind was elsewhere. 

Tediously, the midfielder then had to explain the concept of Throwback Thursday and the #tbt hashtag.

About my last tweet "#TBT" means "throwback"! It's an OLD pic from summer! We're not in dubai now before the derby!!😱😱 it's straight work!

The moral of this story is presumably not to tweet anything, ever, because someone, somewhere will find a way to misunderstand it.
