‘The Adventure Ends’ – forgotten striker leaves Arsenal

NewsNow, Premier League, Transfers

Forgotten man, Yaya Sanogo is to leave The Emirates this summer as his contract comes to an end after a four year career sadly blighted by injuries.

The Frenchman failed to break into Arsene Wenger’s first team plans, but despite one goal in 20 appearances, he still managed to get an FA Cup winners medal and a Charity Shield, more trophies than Spurs have won since 1991.

Talking of Spurs, he did score this beauty in March:

Speaking to L’Equipe, Sanogo said:

“I’m free, the adventure ends. My left calf is healed, it kept me off the pitch for nearly 7 months. I came back in January, with a fitness trainer. I was able to play again for the Arsenal reserves. It was very hard when I was injured. You feel so mentally alone, there is virtually nobody at your side. The injuries stunted my progress, there were moments where I was good. I remember the summer of 2014 when, during the Emirates Cup, I scored a quadruple against Benfica, and then there were some bad decisions, and I maybe did not always do what was necessary to impose myself…”

Anyway, best of luck Yaya, thanks for the memory(ies).
