In a complete interview published by the Sunday Times, Arsenal defender Gael Clichy revealed he is really good friends with midfielder Theo Walcott with whom he goes out often and also added how according to him, the 20-year old is faster than a certain Thierry Henry.
Speaking on his friend, Clichy said:
I guess you just get a connection with certain people. Maybe one day we were the only two young players in the team and talked to each other and since are really good friends. His girlfriend likes my girlfriend and we go out together but he loves golf and I’m so crap and every day I say to Theo stop playing golf, you’ll hurt your shoulder.
He’s a right-winger and I’m a left-back and in training we’re always against each other. I can close him down over a short distance but he’s really, really fast, amazing, faster than Thierry. He broke the (Arsenal sprint) record again this year. When there’s a long ball I’m always trying to keep up. I’m getting old.
