Arsenal youngster Yaya Sanogo says he’s adapting to life in England and at Arsenal, and feels he’ll be ready when he’s given the chance by Arsene Wenger.
In the clamour for a new striker, the former Auxerre man is often overlooked, and with Lukas Podolski out injured – leaving Olivier Giroud as the only recognised centre-forward – he may be called upon at some point when we really need him.
The 20 year old has already made substitute appearances in the Premier League and Champions League, and is waiting for more from the Arsenal manager.
“I know my time will come. I am patient and I am working hard every day. I tell myself that I’m only 20, I have to keep working to gain experience.
“I have been with Arsenal for two months now and I am adapting well to England and starting to get my bearings.
“In training, there are only great players, so you can only move forward.
“Arsenal is a great club, but even if I am only a small part of it I am a player like all the others. I have two eyes and two feet like them.”
It’s hard to know what his feet are like at this point. Clearly Ligue 2 to Arsenal is a massive step up and the learning curve will be steep.
Let’s hope he’s up for it.11,925 views
