Per Metersacker has given an interview to Sport1 in which he talks about his place in the side and Arsenal’s league position and hopes for the rest of the season.
Per, who has become first choice centreback at Arsenal this season due to some impressive displays, said
Of course we are missing some points in the championship, but nevertheless we can still achieve a lot this season.
I think I’ve found my place in the team, the word ‘regular’ is from a different era in football. I can only say that when I was fit, I also played.
There are still games to be completed. It is therefore still in our own hands to achieve our goals and I strongly believe in a successful season.
Mertesacker has played in 28 games this season for Arsenal, including 20 of their 23 league games. Last season, the 28 year old made 21 league appearances.
