Arsenal’s star defender Thomas Vermaelen declared that he’s fed up with playing on the left-back being forced to do that ever since Santos got injured.
The former Ajax man who is one of the best center-back’s in the league fears that he can’t fulfill his potential playing on the fest side and sates that he prefers to be used in the center after having to play on the left for so long.
“I am fed up playing at left-back,” the 26-year-old Belgian is quoted as saying by The People.
“I don’t think I am good there – I want to achieve my highest level and I can’t do that on the left.
“I play there to help the team but it gives me no satisfaction as I can’t reach my best standard.
“I do my job but seldom feel content after matches. If the team wins I am happy, but it remains frustrating.”
“I’m not happy about it,” said Vermaelen,
“I was proud to wear the armband.”
Vermaelen was close to score again in the match against Sunderland as he did so many times before for the Gunners. With Gibbs now available his time on the left side is close to an end so Thomas doesn’t have to worry about that anymore hopefully…
