Arsenal hero Parlour: No-nonsense Sokratis a good addition

Arsenal hero Ray Parlour is convinced by the quality of new signing Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Parlour has hailed Sokratis as a “good signing".

Arsenal badly needed to improve their defence following last season and Emery has clearly made that a priority this summer," Parlour told bWIN.

“I think Sokratis is a good signing and he will be a no-nonsense, traditional defender in the mould of Tony Adams rather than someone who wants to play out from the back.

“Sokratis is very experienced and he's a big game player with great leadership qualities.

“The fact he knows [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan so well is a bonus too."
