Flamini on 200 games and 'feeling young'

Mathieu Flamini says he is very proud to have played 200 games for Arsenal.

The 30-year-old spent four years in north London during his first spell at the club before rejoining at the start of last season, and reached the milestone when he started in the Gunners' 2-1 win against Anderlecht.

"30 is an amazing age because you feel great physically but on the top of it you have much more experience"

“I’m very proud because I’ve been playing for this club for a while now and I really feel at home here,” Flamini told Arsenal Player. “I feel really connected with everything around the club.

“I’m 30 now but I still feel very young. I don’t say that you adapt your game, I’d say you become more clever with your experience and you maybe think more with your head.

“I believe 30 is an amazing age because you feel great physically but on the top of it you have much more experience, so you can use all that for your game. I’m really having a lot of fun and I’m enjoying playing in this team with my team-mates.

“We still play the same football with the same philosophies, which is why it was so easy for me to come back. That’s why it’s working so well for me at this club, because I believe continuity and stability is so important in modern football.”
