Leandro Trossard could hardly contain himself in a recent interview with Arsenal teammate Ben White.

The pair recently rekindled their friendship at the Emirates after Trossard mirrored the England international in making the switch from Brighton to north London.

The Belgium international completed a £27 million transfer January and has already hit the ground running with a goal and an assist to his name after just seven appearances.

The Gunners duo took part in a lighthearted interview with Stadium Astro where White was asked what his favourite part of the day was.

Trossard immediately burst into laughter due to his inside knowledge of White’s off-field interests – or apparent lack of for that matter.

White remained silent, not knowing how to answer the question but Trossard hilariously jumped in and answered on his behalf.

“I think it’s when he’s back home,” the Belgian joked.

White then replied: “You can’t say that on camera, Leo.”

After further deliberation, White finally answered the question saying: “I’d say probably training. Not all the stuff before.”

But Trossard appeared to be having none of it and clamped his mouth shut in order not to burst out laughing at the expense of his teammate.

It comes after White previously revealed he didn’t watch football growing up and still doesn’t now as a professional.

He did admit he watches his own games for self-analysis but doesn’t sit down to take a game in.

“I watch myself for analytical reasons. I watch England, maybe. I just wouldn’t just sit down and watch a game,” White told Sky Sports in November.

Before England’s World Cup campaign he told The Guardian: “Sitting down and watching a 90-minute game after I’ve trained all day and had four or five meetings about football … the last thing I want to do is watch more football.”

Better yet, the 25-year-old has little awareness of Gunners’ legend Patrick Vieira who famously wore White’s No. 4 shirt during his spell at the club.

Speaking of the Frenchman, White added: “I know [Vieira] was a very good player.

“But I wouldn’t know the details. I’m quite busy, I’m always doing something.”

Considering he would have been eight when Vieira left Arsenal in 2005 that’s understandable.

However, after viewing the clip, some supporters gave their views on White’s disconnection with football outside of his club duties.

Posting the video on Twitter, @asxd_98 joked: “Trossard knows White hates football.”

@TheCountrAttack tweeted: “Football is just Ben White’s day job. He’s so much more than that.”

@AFCDressy added: “Don’t say that on camera? He clearly hates football,” and @ayeafc posted laughing emojis.
