Arsenal striker Chamakh pictured in shisha bar after QPR defeat

Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh was pictured with a shisha pipe hours after the Gunners lost to Queens Park Rangers, the Daily Mail has reported. Chamakh was with Rangers player Adel Taarabt, who scored in the match, and the newspaper adds managers Arsene Wenger and Mark Hughes will decide whether or not to punish the players.

Shisha – which is not an illegal substance – is a type of tobacco common in North Africa, and Morocco teammates Chamakh and Taarabt were each photographed in a bar on Saturday evening holding the pipes. Chamakh played the final nine minutes of the match between Arsenal and QPR, replacing Kieran Gibbs as a late substitute, while Taarabt played the full 90 minutes for Rangers, scoring the opening goal in the R’s 2-1 victory.

Chamakh joined Arsenal on a free transfer from Ligue 1 side Bordeaux in 2010, having scored 76 goals in 301 appearances for the club. For Arsenal, the 28-year-old has been on target 12 times in 61 outings, scoring once in 17 appearances this season.
