SUFFICE TO SAY that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was not best pleased after this picture of his striker holding a shisha pipe emerged, only hours after his side’s defeat to QPR.
The Morocco international was pictured with his fellow countryman, Adel Taarabt, who had scored for QPR earlier that day.
Smoking shisha is not illegal in the UK, nonetheless Wenger is reportedly still angry with the behaviour of his striker, particularly in light of the circumstances, while QPR manager Mark Hughes is also thought to be unhappy with Taarabt.
The incident will likely add to speculation that Marouane Chamakh will leave the club in the summer. Despite a promising start to his Arsenal career, the striker has been less impressive of late, only finding the net once in nine appearances this season.
