Babbel: Fighter Mertesacker loved by Arsenal fans

Former Liverpool defender Markus Babbel believes Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker spirit impresses English fans.

Babbel was full of praise, albeit of a slightly backhanded nature.

He told Münchner Merkur: "Per Mertesacker is rated very highly, because he's fought his way into this team. His performances haven't been amazing of late, but he fights, and that impresses the British."
