Reports have emerged claiming that Arsenal legend Robert Pires insists Abou Diaby can rebuild his career at Olympique Marseille.
Diaby left the Gunners for OM last summer.
“Mentally he is very strong, and he believes in himself,” said Pires.
“When I was at Arsenal last April, we found ourselves together and we could talk. I know that mentally he is ready. Anyway, I’m really happy for him because he was really unlucky.
“But honestly, he’s a great player. If he is healthy, and has no more physical glitches, he can really achieve a lot.”
