Walcott wants a trophy as Birthday present

Posted By: Staff

London, Mar. 20 (ANI): After turning 21 on Tuesday, Arsenal winger Theo Walcott received everything - from an expensive bracelet to a bird feeder - as birthday presents, but winning a trophy is something the England star is hoping to get as gift this year.

"Mum always said what does she get a footballer who can have anything? But I am a very grateful person. I'll have anything. I don't have to go to Boots for a very long time. I've got lots of fragrances, shower gel, shampoo - even though I don't have any hair," The Sun quoted Walcott, as saying.

"I got a nice bracelet from my girlfriend Mel, a Shambhala. She also got me some dragon goblets, as I love dragons. I got an alarm clock, as I am lazy - and a bird feeder," he said.

"Hopefully I can be fresh for the forthcoming months and win something, especially for Arsenal. It has been a long time," he added.

The next four months could prove to be his most memorable to date.

Arsenal will feature in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, and in the summer, Walcott will hope to be part of the England squad which travels to South Africa.

So starting with today's home League match with West Ham, every game is vital for him and Arsenal.

"I've been in the limelight since I was 17 so, to be fair, it has gone very quickly. That always put more pressure on me. But it's nice to reach 21 and I've certainly had a lively week," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

"My bash on Sunday was a night to remember. It was meant to be a surprise but Armand Traore leaked it out. It was funny. He was having his hair cut a few days before and said 'See you Sunday, Theo'," he added

"A few players came which was nice and I had some nice presents." (ANI)
