Defensive duties no problems for Arsenal signing Monreal

Spain defender Nacho Monreal has no problems with fulfilling a defensive role at Arsenal. The 26-year-old has settled quickly following his £8.5million deadline day transfer from Malaga.

"I am asked to defend well and not so much to score goals. When I go forward and assist others, it is as if I have scored, so that is a great satisfaction for me," Monreal told Arsenal Player.

"It is difficult to say what your own qualities are, but I am a committed person and so give 100 per cent in every game.

"That is the best attribute that every footballer can have, that every Saturday you give everything you have got for your team."
