This former Arsenal defender may be one of the luckiest players in the world - as he was a member of an Arsenal team better than any other ever assembled in North London, but was nowhere near good enough to be dubbed an ‘Invincible’.
However he had the trust of Arsene Wenger and he is a member of the 2003-04 side that conquered the Premier League without losing a single game.
It was a terrific campaign but if we are honest, Cygan had very little to do with it. Like Sebastien Squillaci’s bald brother he was regularly lampooned by opposing, and it must be said his own fans, for his often erratic displays and unlikely appearance.
He looked more like a man about to throw you out of Yates’ then somebody about to win you a Premier League title.
But doubt his footballing abilities all you want - because it turns out he is Mystic.
‘Mystic Cyg’ as I will forever now call him was speaking to the French press yesterday, when he was asked if the Paris Saint-Germain team currently top of Ligue 1, and at the time of the interview undefeated - were similar to the Invincibles.
In a certain way he seemed to agree at first - before moving on and suggesting that they could not however repeat the incredible feat achieved by the Gunners.
He said they would eventually lose a game during a busy schedule.
A few hours later - they lost their first Ligue 1 game of the campaign away to Evian-Thonon - a team assembled for €28 million compared to PSG’s €430 million.
We have found the new Russell Grant.
Although his psychic powers must be new, I mean, he didn’t see this coming did he?
