Flourishing French defender ‘dreams’ of playing for Arsenal

Arsenal has been the home for a comprehensive array of esteemed French and European stars in recent years including the likes of Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Freddie Ljungberg amongst others, and Valenciennes FC defender Pierre Barremaecker, who is yet to make a senior appearance for his employers, has revealed his ‘dream’ of one day plying his trade at the Emirates.

Barremaecker has lofty aspirations for his developing career and recently conveyed his objectives to Nord-Eclair. From an early age the adaptable defensive option has followed the Gunners, and though he’s indeed yet to be blooded by the Ligue 2 outfit, he certainly didn’t shadow his adoration for one current Arsenal centre-half in particular and how he’s aiming to emulate a glittering selection of club greats from the other side of the English Channel.

He begun by boldly stating: “My models are Koscielny and Thiago Silva, for his leader mentality.”

After divulging who his occupational heroes were, Barremaecker proceeded to reveal his career goal of gracing the Premier League and his ultimate target of pulling on an Arsenal shirt, along with his national colours for Les Bleus.

“Other than that, I dream of playing in the Premier League and to wear Arsenal’s shirt, because when I started to watch football, Vieira, Henry and Bergkamp were there.

“If I could one day wear the France shirt, that would really be a magical moment in my career.” He added.

Given his determination, it’s fair to speculate that Barremaecker’s evidently a tenacious athlete and is also full to the brim with empowering spirit and confidence. The first step for the ambitious centre-half, however, is to break into Les Athéniens’ first-team, then once he’s established himself as a true club asset, who knows where his career will take him. Perhaps north-London is a plausible potential destination after all.
