It has been reported that West Ham midfielder Alex Song will play against his old team at Upton Park, admitting Arsenal will always be in his heart after six years with the Gunners.
The Cameroon international star was a regular in Arsene Wenger’s side from 2008 until he left the club for Barca in 2012, and says his time there was unforgettable.
He told Sky Sports: “Always, this big family will be in my heart. I’ll never forget because what I am now is because of Arsenal, but now it’s important to play against them.
“We’ll enjoy the game, it’s not easy when you play your old team. I just have to do my job.
“Right now, I’m a West Ham player and will focus on that game. We know it’s not easy, but I will try to help my team win the game.”
