Djourou joins queue to praise new Arsenal teammate Chamakh

Marouane Chamakh has won praise for his Arsenal performance over the weekend.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger and defender Johan Djourou praised the Morocco star's 'presence' during the Emirates Cup last weekend.

"He had an intelligent game and was a good presence up front," said the Arsenal boss after Chamakh scored on his home debut in a 1-1 draw with AC Milan. "I believe he did very well. We wanted a player who could play for the team up front and get involved in combinations."

Djourou added: "He can do a lot with his presence. He's a big guy, good with his feet, powerful and good in the air."
