Amidst all the love being showered upon Mesut Ozil, Arsenal’s other (free) summer signing has almost gone unnoticed, yet him impact, in relative terms, has probably been just as important to lifting Arsenal.
Mathieu Flamini had a very solid game against Napoli last night; in fact he looks the very same player who left the Emirates 7 years ago – committed, hard-working, and never afraid to put a tackle in.
Flamini’s performance even earned the praise of Arsenal’s crusty hipster fan Bully, and though he won’t be selling as many shirts as Ozil, his return to London has so far undoubtedly been a hit.
Watch Flamini’s highlights on the clip below.
