Clichy confident Nasri will be Arsenal success

Arsenal fullback Gael Clichy is backing new signing Samir Nasri to make a big impact.

"Samir is a bit like Hleb, he can play right, left and centre," Clichy told

"No one knows him here but I am sure you won't have to wait long to get to know him. He proved in France he could play for a big team and I am sure [he will prove himself] here after a few months ­ because you always need a few months to adapt to the English football.

"I hope he does well for the team, the Club and for himself because he is a good guy, he is a friend of mine. I hope he will show everyone that he deserves to be in one of the biggest clubs in the world and can play here for many years."
