Alexandre Lacazette has explained his trumpet celebration.

The French striker celebrates all his goals by playing an imaginary trumpet.

It’s certainly a unique celebration, which is quite impressive in the weird and wonderful world of modern day goal celebrations.

Lacazette has explained that he started doing it after a bet he made with a friend who happened to like trumpets.

“It was based on a bet with a friend of mine who really likes music that involves trumpets,” said Lacazette, speaking to Arsenal Player.

“It was a joke between the two of us. That’s how it all started, it was all a bet. I’ve just kept doing it and I really like it.

“The first time was in a friendly: Lyon against Sporting Lisbon, I believe, and then I did it in the league at Nancy.”

It’s a celebration we’re hoping to see a lot more of in the games to come.

Lacazette has four goals this season so far, with his recent brace against West Brom helping him gain ground on the likes of Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku.

All of his goals have come at the Emirates Stadium. His first came just two minutes into the opening game against Leicester, while his second was a wonderful finish from outside the box against Bournemouth.

With Brighton to come, he’ll be looking to add to his impressive start at home.

Arsenal then face a trip to Watford after the international break. Hopefully it won’t be too long until he’s playing the trumpet in front the away supporters.
