Per Mertesacker: I prefer football to winter break

Winter is the time to play football, not go on an extended break, says Arsenal's German defender Per Mertesacker.

Mertesacker is spending his first Christmas in London following his switch from Werder Bremen to the Emirates in the summer.   

And while his former team-mates are now spending time off, Mertesacker is more than happy to continue playing through.
