Arsenal midfielder Alex Song is yet again showing that he is one of the most important players for the Gunners and besides doing well in midfield, he also managed to get on the scoresheet last Saturday.
Speaking about his goal in Arsenal’s 4-1 win over Bolton, the Cameroon International revealed he promised his team mates he would score in the game although not everyone took his seriously. Song said how he was presented with a golden opportunity to keep his promise and didn’t fail as he took the chance brilliantly, chipping goalkeeper Adam Bogdan to put his side in a comfortable position.
The 23-year old added how the Gunners have done incredibly well especially since it was the first game after the International break and how the players’ objective is to keep improving and believing in themselves.
Song concluded by explaining how missing strikers Theo Walcott and Robin van Persie is a big problem for the offensive department as he hopes to see his two team mates make a quick recovery from their ankle injuries for manager Arsene Wenger to have a full squad to choose from.
After Bolton, Song said:
At lunchtime before the game I said I would score and everyone said I’m joking but I had a chance and took it very well.
We did very well today, we just need to improve and keep playing like that.
We currently miss Theo and Robin, who are very important for us. They will hopefully come back early because we need everyone.
