Every Friday night, subscribers can watch a brand-new 'Spotlight' interview live on Arsenal TV Online.

These wide-ranging interviews give Arsenal's fans a chance to get to know the players they cheer on week-in, week-out.

Alex Song was the player who went under the 'Spotlight' ahead of the trip to Manchester City. If you missed the live programme, you can catch up now. The midfielder discusses:

  • the reasoning behind his new haircut
  • whether he ever doubted himself making it as a professional
  • his difficulty in making the step up from the youth ranks
  • the influence of his uncle Rigobert Song
  • his thoughts when he heard of Arsenal’s interest
  • his disbelief at meeting idols like Thierry Henry for the first time
  • an impressive 2009/10 season
  • his desire to continue improving
  • whether football is taken too seriously sometimes

          This was first shown as part of Arsenal TV Online's Friday Night Live schedule
