Arsenal boss Wenger: Our FA Youth Cup winners had some talent

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits their latest FA Youth Cup winners are beginning to make a first team breakthrough.

Jack Wilshere, Francis Coquelin and Emmanuel Frimpong are three graduates of the 2009 Youth Cup-winning side to go on and make their mark in the Arsenal first team. Wenger rates them highly.

"When a team wins at Youth Cup level usually there is some quality there," he told Arsenal Player. "It happens sometimes that a team wins the cup and doesn't bring any players through but it looks like in this team many players will make it."
