Sanogo - My journey to Arsenal

Yaya Sanogo has urged his critics to be patient with him - and says he will soon find his scoring touch.

Sanogo netted four times in the Emirates Cup but has yet to register a competitive goal for Arsenal after signing from Auxerre last season.

He accepts that criticism “comes with the job of a striker” and insists he is only focused on continuing the journey that has taken him from obscurity to the Premier League.

"Goals will come as long as I keep working hard. I am always positive and usually when I start scoring I don’t stop"

“I feel the pressure but people should not forget that, three years ago, I was 'living' in the streets [playing football all the time],” he told Arsenal Player. “Today I’m playing for Arsenal.

“When I joined Auxerre’s training centre I knew I wanted to become a footballer and I told myself I had to be the best player there. I had to sign that contract and, after being injured for two years, Arsenal found me.

“Goals will come as long as I keep working hard. I am always positive and usually when I start scoring I don’t stop. I haven’t set any targets yet, all I care about is that I play and improve my game.

“Of course people will pressurise me - sometimes I get good critics and sometimes they are unfair, but I am catching up slowly and I am confident my time will come.”
