Speedy French fullback Armand Traore will be desperate to give Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger a title boost tonight, as the 18-year-old’s new Pompey side take on Manchester United at Fratton Park.
Traore, 18, makes his Portsmouth debut against United following last week’s season-long loan move from Arsenal.
The former France Under 17 international, who replaces left-back Hermann Hreidarsson at Fratton Park this evening, said:
“Obviously I had a chat with Arsene and he is going to be watching. I will speak to him after and some of the players, so I will be doing my best to get a result. This is a good chance to prove myself. Harry said he believes in me and I need to be strong.” Traore told The Sun.
Armand has made 18 appearances at the Emirates – most of them in the Carling Cup – since joining from Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco in late 2005.
