Arsenal fans need not lose sleep over the thought of Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere retraining in order to find a new role having already showing signs of flourishing in specialist box-to-box and deeper-lying midfield positions, respectively.
While the two Gunners did pause in order to take a few pictures, taking over from resident club photographer Stuart MacFarlane at their Bad Waltersdorf training base in Austria, they will likely keep their day job - despite having their workout session interrupted due to a downpour of rain.
Perhaps the inclement weather was a blessing in disguise as it will prepare them fully for the anticipated cold, windy days of football in the north of England in the coming season.
Arsenal have been training in Austria since returning to Europe from their brief tour of the East Coast of the USA, which culminated in a 1-0 friendly loss to New York Red Bulls. Previously, they had beaten Boreham Wood in North London by a 2-0 score.
They are now preparing themselves for two Emirates Cup clashes this weekend, against Benfica on Saturday and then AS Monaco on Sunday, ahead of the Community Shield test against Manchester City on Sunday, August 10.
