On-loan from Arsenal, Senderos said he owes a lot to his manager: "I think Arsene Wenger has shown so much confidence by signing me at 18 years of age. For me, it was a great opportunity. I must thank him for all that he gave me and now I am here on loan and I have to give my best for the team where I now play.
"I do not have to prove anything to Wenger or anyone in particular, I must only prove things to myself, stay healthy every day and become better. This is what I think I have to prove to everyone - and to me first.
"The coach (Carlo Ancelotti) has shown confidence in me by getting me here, now I must show what I can do."
