Introducing "Win", Arsenal's team dog
Arsenal have recently unveiled their squad photo for the 2023/24 season, and alongside the players and coaching staff, a little-known member of the team stole the spotlight. Meet "Win", Arsenal's beloved team dog, a chocolate Labrador who has become a fan favorite since being introduced last season. Win regularly roams the training ground and according to The Times, was brought in to help calm players and reduce stress levels.
Community Shield draws attention
In addition to the team dog, Arsenal proudly displayed their Community Shield trophy in the squad photo. The Gunners won the shield earlier this season by defeating Manchester City on penalties at Wembley. While some rival fans took the opportunity to tease Arsenal for including the Community Shield in their photo, it is actually a common practice for current holders to showcase the trophy in their squad pictures.
Reaction from fans
Following the release of Arsenal's squad photo, fans took to social media to express their thoughts. Many Arsenal supporters were delighted to see Win featured prominently, with one fan describing the Labrador as completing the squad. Rival fans playfully mocked Arsenal, commenting on the inclusion of the Community Shield trophy in the photo.
Focused on future success
Arsenal will now turn their attention to their upcoming Champions League campaign. Tomorrow, they will host PSV for their first game in the competition since the 2016/17 season. As the Gunners aim to add more silverware to their trophy cabinet, fans hope to see even more successes in future squad photos.
