Armand Traore will be on familiar territory on Wednesday night when Arsenal travel to Portsmouth for their final game of the decade.

The French left-back spent last season on loan at Fratton Park, serving under three different managers during a tumultuous campaign for the south-coast club.

Armand looked ahead to a reunion with some of his old temporary team-mates when he spoke exclusively to Arsenal TV Online after the 3-0 win over Aston Villa. He discussed:

  • his return from a hamstring injury
  • a big win over Aston Villa
  • the influence of Cesc Fabregas
  • why Villa are tough opponents
  • finding his true position
  • heading back to Portsmouth
  • his mixed fortunes on loan
  • Pompey's struggles this season
  • the Fratton Park crowd


Subscribers can now watch this exclusive interview on Arsenal TV Onine.
