Interview

Ryan - The moment I fell in love with Arsenal

Mat Ryan can remember the precise moment when, growing back in Australia, he became an Arsenal fan.

"I was a young kid at my friend's house and we were watching television at the time and on came a documentary of Thierry Henry," the goalkeeper told Arsenal.com. 

"Being a football lover, me and my friend sat there watching and we were just in awe of his achievements and what he was doing in this documentary. It was obviously a montage of highlights, of goals he'd scored and the success he'd helped contribute to at Arsenal with what they'd won in those times. 

"From that moment on, I basically fell in love with him and the club and became an Arsenal supporter. I have been, I was going to say until this day, but I guess when I was down there in Brighton and signed there, you guys became a rival. 

"So I guess a little less so then, but it's still a club that had a special place in my heart and now even more so than it ever has in the past because I've got the opportunity to represent them now."
