The full-back has certainly been one of the surprises from the transfer window following a run of great performances for the Gunners.
Sead Kolašinac joined Arsenal on a free transfer from Schalke during the close-season, but has turned out a great bargain. The 24-year-old has settled in perfectly at the club from north London, but he admits he was nervous about working with his new manager.
The defender quickly became a fan favourite, featuring in almost every Premier League game so far and even scoring in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Koln. Kolašinac believes he has developed well at the Emirates Stadium and insists he is happy to work under Wenger despite having second thoughts about it in the beginning.Strachan: Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney similar to Virgil van Dijk Andrew Smyth – Gordon Strachan believes Arsenal new signing Kieran Tierney is a similar kind of defender to Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk.
“It is really a lot of fun to work alongside a manager like Wenger. He has been here ever since I can remember,” he told Arsenal’s website.
“At the start, maybe I was a bit nervous to work alongside him. The fact that he speaks German really helps me – it made it a lot easier again for me to settle in here. He is good to work with.
“The season is young but I am happy with how I’ve developed and how I have started. But I have got more potential to get better and I want to show that in the coming games.”
