Sanogo adapting to life with Arsenal
Thursday 12 September 2013
Having joined during the summer striker Yaya Sanogo has said that he is settling in well at Arsenal, while admitting that he must become physically stronger to prove effective in the Premier League, Sky Sports is reporting.
Sanogo became Arsene Wenger’s first summer signing when he arrived on a free transfer from Auxerre, where he struggled with injuries. Wenger sees him as a good prospect for the future, and he has so far made two substitute appearances in the Premier League after playing his part during pre-season.
And the Frenchman told the Arsenal website: “I think I'll have to toughen up and improve my strength, that's part and parcel of such an intense league as the Premier League, as well as getting used to the step up, which it is from the French league.
“My main aims are to come here and learn, progress in the game and learn my trade with such great players. Now I'm training with them, I'll gradually make progress.”
Abou Diaby and Bacary Sagna also played for Auxerre, and they have helped Sanogo to settle in. “I've got used to my teammates really well. I've had time with and spoken to people like Bacary Sagna who's from Auxerre too and this has really helped me to settle,” added the 20-year-old.
