No-one knows Olympiacos better than Gilberto. The former Arsenal star is just starting his second season with Athens rivals Panathinaikos and played the Greek League leaders just two weeks ago.

On Tuesday night, the Brazilian midfielder stopped off at Arsenal's team hotel before talking to Arsenal TV Online about tonight's opponents.

He discussed:

  • the challenge face Arsenal's youngsters this evening
  • the much-fable atmosphere
  • how it compares to a Premier League game
  • the biggest dangers on the Olympiacos side
  • the most recent Athens derby
  • his respect with Olympiacos coach Zico


Arsenal TV Online subscribers can see this video now.

This was part of a major interview on Gilberto's long and illustrious career with Arsenal. That will be available soon on TV Online.
