Arsenal defender Johan Djourou sees himself more like Chelsea hero Marcel Desailly than former teammate Sol Campbell.

He told the Official Matchday Programme: "Sol was a fantastic player for us, but I think I can do a bit more in terms of being comfortable on the ball and going forward – I’d say the kind of player I could develop into is more like Marcel Desailly.

"But it’s very nice of Kolo to say that, of course, because Sol Campbell is just a legend! He has everything you need to be a top defender, and he was exactly that for this club. He’s got that aggression and tactical ability, is good in the air and is very strong."
