English professional football club Arsenal has taken to its social media channels to officially welcome its newest signing Oleksandr Volodymyrovych Zinchenko. We reported earlier that the player’s move from Manchester City to Arsenal was a done deal and the player was already dining with the Gunners.
In his first interview, Zinchenko who is popularly called Alex said that coming to Arsenal was his boyhood dream come true. He has always been a fan of the club and would watch the likes of Thierry Henry and Cesc Fabregas as a kid and has been waiting for an opportunity like this.
Zinchenko is the second player to be signed from Manchester City this summer after the arrival of Gabriel Jesus and also the second Ukrainian to play at Arsenal. The team player gave an amazing response when asked about his thoughts on the best position he should be playing since he is known for many things. He went on to say “Wherever the manager is going to see me on the pitches. It’s the simple answer but it’s true, even if the manager tells me one day I need to be goalkeeper, I will be there.”
His first day of training was filled with joy and excitement as he joined the other players at the pre-season training camp in Orlando. Although his Squad number has not been decided and announced, he was welcomed happily by everyone as his transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes. Take a look
