Arsenal's Diaby welcomes Vieira comparison

Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby has welcomed comparisons with former Gunners captain Patrick Vieira.

The young Frenchman played in yesterday's victory at Tottenham and told L'Equipe: "This year counts a lot for me, I want to achieve a great season with Arsenal.

"It is flattering! [to be compared to Patrick Vieira] I dream that my career will be as good as his, and even better!

"Patrick is a great player, one of the best in the world and an example for me. I would love to discuss with him one day. He has a lot of things to teach me.

"But every time I was called up for France, he was injured. It will happen."
