Trophy target for Santos

Published Add your comment

Arsenal new boy Andre Santos hopes his committed performances on the pitch will quickly endear himself to Gunners fans, as he quickly sets about the task of ending the club's six-year wait for a trophy.

The 28-year-old Brazilian international moves to the Emirates Stadium with one burning ambition - his ultimate goal is to play a leading role in the landing of long overdue silverware.

Less than a week ago, Arsenal's title hopes were in tatters, despite being only three games into the 2011-12 Barclays Premier League campaign. But following a late flurry of transfer activity conducted by under pressure manager Arsene Wenger, the Gunners now look to be in with a shout of challenging once again.

"There are great expectations from the supporters and I hope that my way of working, of playing, will win the hearts and minds of the other players, the supporters and all those who work for Arsenal," Santos told Arsenal Player.


"This is my main goal at the club - I managed to win over the supporters at Fenerbahce and I hope the same will happen here."

The £6million arrival from Turkey was drafted in on deadline day, with the aim of addressing Arsenal's defensive problems that have plagued them both domestically and in Europe for some time, as well as to fill the void left by departed full-backs Gael Clichy and Armand Traore.

"I arrive here with one aim - being a champion," he continued. "I will wear Arsenal's shirt and give my utmost to it. I will do everything for the club."
