Per Mertesacker on signing a new contract extension at Arsenal: ‘I want to finish my career here’ [Video]

Arsenal’s Big Fucking German, Per Mertesacker has signed a new two year contract, which is a big statement from the German, effectively committing himself to the club for the rest of his career.

As he says himself to Arsenal TV in the interview below, at 29, he’s reaching the stage where his next contract will be his last, and the BFG emphatically says he now wants to finish his career at Arsenal.

Mertesacker then moves on to talk matters Arsenal more generally, discussing the Ox’s development, Ozil’s adaption, and what Arsenal can achieve this season.

Can the BFG go on from here to become a defensive stalwart in the tradition of Sol Campbell and Tony Adams?
