INTERVIEWS Technical director Edu and coach Mikel Arteta praise their newest signing Albert Sambi Lokonga on the Arsenal website. Striking: coach Arteta makes it seem that Vincent Kompany has provided the necessary boost.
"We are delighted that Albert has signed with us," says technical director Edu. "There was a lot of interest and he was an important target for us. We have been following Albert for a while. He will strengthen our midfield. We look forward to his further development with us."
"Albert is a smart player who, despite his young age, already has a lot of maturity," said coach Arteta. "He was well coached by Vincent Kompany and his team at Anderlecht. I know Vincent well and he speaks highly of Albert and the positive impact he had on Anderlecht last season. We are convinced that Albert is ready for the next step in his development. We look forward to welcoming Albert with his qualities and presence to our team."
