Arsenal defender Konstantinos Mavropanos revealed the day he started to keep tabs on Arsenal, as he spoke to club’s official website.
The Gunners have signed Mavropanos from Greek side PAS Giannina and the young defender says that he has been following the Gunners for the last 12 years. He was also very stoked to join the North London side and didn’t hide his ecstasy.
And along with that he also shared the moment he started to follow his current suitors, as it goes back more than a decade ago in 2006 when Arsene Wenger’s side played Barcelona in the Champions League final.
“I remember the first time I started watching Arsenal, it was the 2006 Champions League final. Everybody was talking about Ronaldinho then, but what I was most impressed with was the passion that the Arsenal players were playing with.”
“They may have been down to 10 players early on after Lehmann’s sending off, but they played much better than Barcelona overall. They might have lost in the end but I was really impressed with their performance. Since then I started to watch Arsenal more closely.”
