New Arsenal signing Mikael Silvestre has been praised by Gunners’ legend Frank McLintock who believes it’s a good bit of business done by Arsene Wenger.
The 31-year-old completed his £750,000 move last night and signed a 2-year deal and become another member of Arsenal’s almost all-French backline.
And McLintock, who skippered the club to the Double in 1971, insisted:
“Silvestre will be a very, very good signing for us.
“I never even thought about him but he is just the type of player we need. He has bags of experience and won’t cost a lot as he is 31.
“Being French, he’ll have no trouble settling in.”
Mikael is set to train with his new team-mates for the first time this morning and could make his debut against Fulham if Kolo Toure isn’t fit.
