Arsenal won 2-1 in their latest Premier League match against Swansea on Saturday and one man who ignited the Gunners resurgence was new signing Sead Kolasinac, he scored and assisted in the game to turn the tide in Arsenal’s favor. Wenger recently spoke about the left back in media and was high in praise for the new boy.

“Kolasinac was decisive today, because he scored and made an assist. We had a bit more space on the left, we saw that and we wanted to take advantage of that in the second half because they blocked Hector a lot with Clucas on our right side.”
“For us it was important to build up on the right and change quickly to the left and create some space for Kolasinac. He did that very well,” Wenger said when he was asked about Kolasinac.

Arsenal boss also told that Kolasinac has made everyone believe that he is a good signing since he has come at the Emirates and he has been accepted by everyone. Also his body power and his energy has helped him to adapt in the Premier League so quickly, according to Wenger.
But there was concern among Arsenal fans as Kolasinac limped off in the final minutes of the game and had to go off. But the Frenchman assured that it is not t huge problem and it has bothered him in the past as well.
