In the Q&A that followed the main signing session, the Nagoya native was asked what he would show his team-mates of his city.

Meanwhile Walcott suggested Ryo was challenging for the unofficial title of fastest player in the squad. For his part, Wilshere talked about pre-season training and his trophy aspirations for the season ahead

A polite but passionate audience lapped it up.
