Stephan Lichtsteiner: FC Augsburg gives me the challenge I want

Stephan Lichtsteiner is delighted with his move to FC Augsburg.

The 35 year-old Swiss defender has signed a one-year contract with FCA after being released by the Gunners.

FCA sports chief Stefan Reuter also said: "We are delighted that with Stephan Lichtsteiner we have been able to win over an experienced professional to FCA, who, with his impressive career in Switzerland, France, Italy, England and the Swiss national team, has an unbelievable wealth of experience to offer in addition to his sporting qualities."
