With Thierry Henry’s position as a coach of the Belgian national team, he is better placed than most to study the qualities of our new signing, Albert Sambi Lokonga.
The 21-year-old midfielder became our second signing of the summer when he joined from Anderlecht on Monday - and he says he has learnt a lot from working alongside our record goalscorer.
“It's very great, very great,” Lokonga told Arsenal Media.
"It was really great [to work with him in the Belgian national team]. A great experience because in the few times I was with him on the pitch I learnt a lot, so it was a really great experience.
“I think it's a good thing for me because Thierry Henry was a legend over here."
