Arsenal boss Wenger heaps praise on Silvestre leadership

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has heaped praise on defender Mikael Silvestre.

The Frenchman will start in Arsenal's Champions League clash with Olympiacos.

"He doesn't get enough praise for his attitude and his quality," said Wenger of the 32-year-old. "Silvestre's commitment to the cause was absolutely fantastic at Man City.

"People respect him highly in the dressing room. He's a quiet leader.

"He is a positive guy and helps the young players, but of course the best help is to win the games."
