Dad delighted Oxlade-Chamberlain chose Arsenal

Former England star Mark Chamberlain is delighted to see son Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain making his name at Arsenal.

Chamberlain is convinced the fact that the Ox is at big guns Arsenal should help his international career. .

He told The Sun: "If you are not at one of the top teams then you can get overlooked when it comes to internationals..

"That was one of the reasons why I pushed for Alexander to leave Southampton. It's a lot easier to get picked when you're playing for Arsenal and that's never changed..

"It's brilliant for him because that is what he's worked for and he's had good support from me, his mum, his agent Aidy Ward and everyone around him..

"And whatever pressure is on him, we try to take it off. We try to give him guidance that many footballers during my playing years didn't have..

"We just used to play football, go home and that was it."
