Gifted Arsenal signing announces ‘he is very happy with the fans’
Arsenal summer signing Fabio Vieira has been discussing his start to life at the Emirates – and has sent a clear message to the fans
After an impressing season last year – Mikel Arteta shocked many fans when he got the club to splash the cash and bring Vieira to the Emirates in a deal worth £34 million.
Many of the fans had no idea who the player was – they had never seen him play the game and honestly – many were wondering why so much money was spent on a player that still has alot to prove in the game
However – he has been impressing lately and scored his first goal of the season against Brentford last weekend – and now, he has discussed his start to life at the Emirates Stadium.
“Obviously it was very good for me as I arrived here injured, unfortunately.
“I had some time sidelined. Returning to competition costs a little bit, but step by step, I trained, evolved and grew. Now I’m here, I scored the first goal and I’m very happy about it,” Fabio Vieira told ESPN Brasil, via Mais Futebol.
Vieira also spoke about the affection he’s been getting from Arsenal fans, as they’ve adapted the chant they once had for Patrick Vieira for the Portuguese midfielder. “It’s really good to hear that,” he said.
“It’s a sign that the fans are liking me and what I am as a player. Feeling their support is fantastic.
“I need to improve my English and he helps me a lot with the language.
“Having Brazilians and Portuguese in the team helped me. It’s people that speak the same language. I don’t know much English, but I’m learning and with their help it’s getting easier.”
Vieira has looked impressive for the Gunners so far and fans are very happy by what they have seen – but he needs to carry on this form as playing for the Arsenal is a massive chance that he simply cannot waste
