Mathieu Flamini has admitted that he is happy to do the defensive work for Arsenal’s midfield.
The French midfielder’s return has been celebrated as one of the big signings of the season.
The 29 year old told Arsenal.com: “What I’m trying to do is be natural. I have some qualities and I’m trying to play with my own qualities – I’m not trying to do anything else. If it’s what’s needed I’m happy to do it. I really feel comfortable with my team-mates. I feel good on the pitch and outside the pitch and so far, it’s going well. I’m really happy and I really hope it will keep going on like that.”
