Arsenal defender expecting to bounce back

Arsenal's Djourou is looking for a responseArsenal defender Johan Djourou is expecting to bounce back from yet another defeat this season, this time at the hands of Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Arsenal were defeated 4-3 with Djourou even adding his name to the score sheet, albeit via an own goal. However the young centre-back is looking for the side to respond this week against Shrewsbury in the Carling Cup and again when they host Bolton Wanderers – another out of form side – in the Premiership.

“When you lose, it is always important to have a response, even if it is at home in the Carling Cup, we want to win so we need a big response on Tuesday. We have to bounce back because we have another game and we have to be ready for those. We are disappointed but there is still a long way to go and things are not over yet.”

The Arsenal defender continued:

“We had many chances to put the game to bed in the first half and, when you don’t do that, you are always in danger of getting punished. I think that is what happened on Saturday.”

Djourou added:

“The team is building together and we are getting stronger together, we could have won the game but this team has got a lot of potential and we have to work hard to be the best.”

    Djourou should keep quiet and work on improving. He makes critical mistakes in matches(he does the same for Switzerland). He should not be in the EPL, let alone play for Arsenal. Watch him very closely, he is not a quality player. Definately the weak link in the defense in my opinion. Others have to cover him too many times

    Djourou … yes Arsenal need to bounce back. And – if it’s not too late – you need to go on loan to another club to learn how to defend because you have not been taught at Arsenal … nor will you be. Either that or revert to your original position of defensive midfield before your hero, M. Wenger, decided you should be a central defender (which you are not.)
