Arsenal captain Per Mertesacker will be hoping to play a greater role in piloting the team towards success next season, having missed almost the entirety of the last campaign through injury.

However on Monday he was trying his hand at being a captain of a different kind as the Gunners travel to Australia for their pre-season tour.

Mertesacker sat up front with the pilot as the plane stopped over in Dubai on its way down under, with Arsenal to play a series of friendly fixtures.
