Arsenal Players + Durian = Funny

English Premier League sides Arsenal, Everton and Stoke are coming here to Singapore in July for some pre-season exhibition matches.

Ahead of the trip, Arsenal players were asked to try the notoriously stinky durian fruit, native to Southeast Asia. Love their reactions.

The video is embedded above and on YouTube here.

  1. Hi Newley —

    As you know, I’m a Malaysian Gooner. I like the taste of the fruit but have to say that I’m not a fan of the smell — especially in an enclosed space! If they made odorless durians that still could taste good, that’d suit me! 😉

    Good on Debuchy and the others willing to try the fruit. Chesney’s a coward!
