Arsenal defender Mertesacker hails Vermaelen attitude

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has hailed the attitude of club captain Thomas Vermaelen.

Vermaelen has found himself frozen out this season.

"We have three good centre-backs, we're in a good competition, and that lifts everyone," said Mertesacker.

"We have a good skipper with Thomas Vermaelen, who is at the moment behind us but how he behaves as a skipper to support everyone at this club, that's the main thing for me. We have that team spirit we need. That builds everything."
