What went wrong with Andre Santos at Arsenal?

Why has Andre Santos failed to deliver at Arsenal? When I heard Andre Santos was moving to Arsenal I was happy and thought the club had purchased a great player who would become a vital part of the team.

I saw him play at Fenerbache in Turkey and I was immediately impressed. He had a great ability to run back and forth from the left back position to the opposition box in very little time and retain his stamina, not only this but he caused the defenders for the other team as many problems as the strikers were causing.

Van Persie – Santos is so much more than a left-back!

Arsenal’s talismanic captain Robin Van Persie was confident that Andre Santos would become a vital part of the Gunners squad when the Brazilian arrived, and also thinks that he has improved incredibly as time goes on.

The Dutch international said: “When he first arrived I remember him saying he’d need five or six games to get his fitness up before things would really kick off for him,”

“It was true – he’s grown stronger and fitter in every single game, and what I really like about him is his confidence on the ball.
