PHOTO: Arsenal prankster Podolski photobombs Sanchez's Player of the Month award ceremony

The November Player of the Month award ceremony at Arsenal didn't go quite according to plan thanks to Lukas Podolski.

Arsenal's resident joker Lukas Podolski continued to increase his reputation as the squad's prankster as he photobomed Alexis Sanchez's Player of the Month award ceremony yesterday evening. 

Sanchez was presented with the recognition for his fine form over the month of November pitchside, before Arsenal took on Southampton, and Podolski couldn't resist the opportunity to crash the ceremony. 

The German ended up looking more pleased than Sanchez in the picture, as he leapt up behind his teammate with a huge grin on his face. 

Podolski has struggled for appearances for the Gunners so far this season, but it does not appear to be negatively affecting his morale, with the World Cup winner still happy to show his funny side. 

Sanchez received the award on the back of a brilliant month, where he scored five goals in six games for the club in all competitions.
