Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger highlights three qualities of Yaya Sanogo

Arsenal warm up

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is full of praise for Yaya Sanogo following his performance against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been singing the praises of striker Yaya Sanogo.

The 21-year-old scored his first competitive goal for the Gunners in their 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Sanogo found the target after just two minutes to send Arsenal into the lead, and Wenger has now highlighted what makes the France Under-21 international special.

Sanogo joined Arsenal on a free transfer in the summer of 2013 after leaving Auxerre and is largely considered a squad player.

The youngster has struggled for playing time and was included in the Gunners’ starting line-up against Dortmund due to the injury to Danny Welbeck.

Perhaps Sanogo’s goal will convince Wenger to play him more often as the season progresses.
