Arsenal defender Vermaelen admits foreign players can suffer season season blues

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen admits foreign players can suffer second season blues.

Vermaelen is now in his second year at the Gunners.

He told Chinese fans in an Arsenal Q&A: "Maybe that is true because in the first season everything is new and people don't expect much from you. If you do well in the first season they know you and expect you to do well. So maybe the second season is harder."
