Arsenal's Flamini likened to Gattuso

Arsenal defender Kolo Toure rates Mathieu Flamini as their Rino Gattuso.

Flamini has been dubbed 'nasty' by some Premiership opponents and Toure says: "He does such a huge job in midfield. Having such a player in your team is just great.

"Thanks to him, in defence we are rarely put in trouble. That is why we call him Gattuso.

"He is a real marathon runner, he runs everywhere. He has a fantastic heart and fights for everyone.

"He is involved in any clash, but only for the good of the team."
