Andre Santos has received a mix bag of opinions from Arsenal fans thus far in his Arsenal career. Many fans are slating his poor defensive abilities, especially against Chelsea in the first half of that game. Last night (Tuesday) against Marseille in the Champions League, Santos also went AWOL at times whilst defending and we have to rely on Song to cover for him.
But going forward, Santos does not look bad at all and he is giving us a new attacking dimension down the left.
Wenger has spoken out about Santos and the boss says that Santos is actually better defensively than we all think.
Wenger said, “I am happy when he has the ball.
“I feel personally, he is much better defensively than many people think.
“He is getting stronger in every game. He is a very intelligent boy who learns very quickly and obviously he has to adapt to the pace of the English game.
“That is not easy, to play game after game.”
What do you make of Santos so far at Arsenal?
