It was a good experience, a good moment in my career. Now we are going to play tomorrow against a big, big club with big players. They won’t have every player on the pitch tomorrow because they are on holiday, but for me it’s important for our preparation. It will also be nice for me to meet my friends who I worked with at Paris Saint-Germain,” said Emery on the club website.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“For us, it’s about continuing our preparations. It’s another match but we don’t want to change our focus.

Usually you don’t speak specifically about football in this moment, more football in general,” Emery said on his replacement.Arsenal lost their first game of the ICC competition in a 3-1 penalty shoot-out loss to Atletico Madrid on Thursday.last_img
