As one of the most senior figures to have been with the sqaud over the last couple of weeks, Gael Clichy wore the captain's armband in Arsenal's win over Barnet on Saturday.

The full-back was typically resolute and completed his new duties with aplomb, retaining the role of leader for the draw in Hungary. After the match Clichy spoke to Arsenal TV Online. He discussed:

  • progressing since Barnet
  • moving forward
  • being ready in time for West Brom
  • reaching optimum fitness levels
  • his role as captain
  • his 'pleasure' at playing with the younger players
