Arsenal's Jenkinson: All players excited about Asia return

Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson says all the players in the squad are looking forward to getting back to Asia.

The Gunners head back to the Far East later this month following last year's visit and there is plenty of excitement in the air according to Jenkinson who had a ball last time they toured the region.

"We're all really looking forward to it," he told Arsenal Player ahead of the trip to Malaysia, China and Hong Kong.

"We enjoyed it last year and we're really looking forward to getting back out there and seeing our fans again.

"To see [the supporters being] so passionate and to see their love for the Club and the players was amazing. I can't say expected it to be like that - it really blew me away.

"We don't get the opportunity to see them very often and to see the love and the passion they have for the Club was really refreshing. It gives everyone a boost at the start of the season."
