Mathieu Flamini is “taking over the world” from the Arsenal dressing room, according to his team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Social media went into meltdown yesterday after Flamini revealed that he has co-founded a company with a 400-strong workforce that has revolutionised the green energy industry in a “market potentially worth £20billion”.

Oxlade-Chamberlain explained that the French midfielder, who is renowned for his energy and communication on matchdays, is a figure of authority off the pitch.

Asked which Arsenal player would make the best Prime Minister, Oxlade-Chamberlain said: “The Flam, Mathieu Flamini. I would actually prefer him to be President – bigger country, more land for him to rule, more world domination.

“Anywhere we go Flam takes control. He is very organised, he gets everyone in line and he makes it happen.

“He would be the best President for me. He has a definite hold on nuclear power. I think he does deals daily – gas, eco-friendly stuff. He is taking over the world from the Arsenal dressing room.”

Flamini and his business partner Pasquale Granata founded GF Biochemicals seven years ago and says it has become the first company on the planet to mass produce Levulinic Acid, which is said to be able to replace oil in all its forms.
