Omar Rekik thrilled with Arsenal move: I'm a winner

Former Hertha Berlin defender Omar Rekik is delighted with his move to Arsenal.

Rekik's move was formalised on Thursday.

"It feels great to be here after a long time of hard work. It feels great. I moved in three weeks ago and I've been in quarantine, so I can't wait to get started," said Rekik.

"I'm a winner. I always want to win, and that's with everything, not only football, ever since I was a kid. My style of play? I'm a central defender and I like to play with the ball, I like to play out from the back, and I think this is also the structure of the club. It fits perfectly."

He added: "At Hertha I had a lot of experiences, good and bad, but I'm happy for even the bad ones because it makes you into the person and character that you are. I've experienced a lot there. I had three good seasons there and I'm very happy."
