Arsenal defender backing latest signing

Mertesacker believes Henry still has the class he used to haveArsenal’s defensive summer signing Per Mertesacker has given his full backing to the likely January signing Thierry Henry and also gives praise to Arsenal target Lukas Podolski.

Henry has been training with the Arsenal side whilst the MLS are on their winter break and Mertesacker claims the Frenchman still shows the same class and attitude as he did when he previously played for the Gunners.

“In training, Henry shows his class and (it’s good) to have him with us. He still has the same attitude he showed in a lot of games at Arsenal.”

Although Mertesacker gave little away with regards to a transfer offer for Germany international Podolski, it is obvious that he holds his international team mate in high regard.

“He is a great player, especially for the national team, he is a good striker with a very good finish. His left foot is unbelievable and I am a fan of him. This year, he has scored a lot of goals. He is powerful as well.”

With Henry very much in the bag and reported to be unveiled next Monday, one can only wonder at this time whether Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is seriously considering a move for Podolski.

    Mertersaker is a nice defender that nds tym 2 adapt 2 EPL.If he starts using his leverage well both offensively & defensively,fans will start 2 like him.But we still need another defender at least for the rest of the season(fulback or CB).I may also like 2 see another teenage revelation in defence like AOC,so I also expect 2 see a 16-18yr old come up be it Angha or a new signing.

    Wenger is not interested in signing players for the future. He will blind every one with Henry signing, but after two months, the team will be short of options. Wenger should be fired. He is not the one to lead arsenal to the future
