Mathieu Flamini har signert


Mathieu Flamini signerte i dag en ettårskontrakt med Crystal Palace. Den 32 år gamle midtbanespilleren har en lang karriere bak seg i Marseille, Arsenal og AC Milan. Dette inkluderer hele 246 offisielle kamper for Arsenal, 168 av de i Premier League.

I sin lange karriere har han vunnet tre FA-cuper og nådd finalen i Champions League for Arsenal, samt vunnet Serie A for AC Milan, og spilt i UEFA-cup finalen for Marseille.

Spilleren som får nummer fire på ryggen uttalte etter signeringen: “Crystal Palace is a very ambitious club with great players and I am looking forward to being part of that squad. It is a very interesting challenge for me and I am very excited to be here. I have had chance to discuss the move here with Alan Pardew and he really helped me make my decision.”

Alan Pardew var selvsagt svært fornøyd med å ha styrket stallen: “I thought it was important to get another midfield player. His playing ability will help us but also his leadership qualities and his ability of how to win games in a passing style. I am delighted that we have secured a player of his stature.”
