Arsene Wenger Praises Brazilian
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has leapt to the defence of summer signing Andre Santos, and claims he is happy with the Brazilians progress.
The attacking left-back is starting to settle down after his £6m move from Galatasaray in the summer, and has been playing far more than expected due to an injury picked up by Keiran Gibbs.
Despite his ability going forward, displayed with a vital goal against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last week, the full back has been criticised for his defensive attributes, something the Frenchman defends:
“I am happy when he has the ball. I feel personally he is much better defensively than many people think.
“He is getting stronger in every game. He is a very intelligent boy who learns very quickly and obviously he has to adapt to the pace of the English game. That is not easy, to play game after game,” said Wenger.
