Interview

Mavropanos - When I started following Arsenal

Konstantinos Mavropanos may have only joined us at the start of this month, but his affiliation with the club stretches back further than that.

Excelling for both Apollon Smyrni and PAS Giannina, the defender had never played football outside of his native Greece, but that hasn’t stopped him following our progress for the past 12 years.
 
“I’m very happy to be part of this team, I promise to give everything to please the fans,” Mavropanos told Arsenal Player. “It’s a big honour and I’m very happy, very emotional.
 
“I remember the first time I started watching Arsenal, it was the 2006 Champions League final. Everybody was talking about Ronaldinho then, but what I was most impressed with was the passion that the Arsenal players were playing with.
 
“They may have been down to 10 players early on after Lehmann’s sending off, but they played much better than Barcelona overall. They might have lost in the end but I was really impressed with their performance. Since then I started to watch Arsenal more closely.
 
“There have been a lot of good players over the years, but one that stood out to me is Thierry Henry, obviously. He was dynamic, quick and could score any goal possible.”
