Chamakh: Arsenal style almost gave me heart attack!

Marouane Chamakh feared Arsenal's non-stop style would give him a heart attack.

The Moroccan joined the Gunners on a free transfer from Bordeaux during the summer, having spent his entire career with the French club.

Chamakh has netted six times this term but he admitted: "I almost had a seizure when I first played for Arsenal.

"I told myself that I would never be able to stand up to playing an entire match.

"At Arsenal we go on the attack all the time, and I was completely unaware when I first joined them.

"At times I wanted our keeper to slow down play a little by keeping hold of the ball. But no, he'd launch it upfield straight away."
