LONDON, January 1- Arsenal fans have called on manager Arsene Wenger to sign Harambee Stars captain, Victor Wanyama, after the Kenyan put a man of the match performance for Southampton in their 2-0 win over the Gunners at Saint Mary’s stadium.
Wanyama was in imperious form in defensive midfield, breaking up most of Arsenal’s attacks by pocketing Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlin, Calum Chambers and later, substitute Theo Walcott.
According to footballfancast.com, Wanyama’s display caught the eye of Arsenal supporters worldwide.
“Naturally, the Gooners have called for Arsene Wenger to make the former Celtic man one of their first signings this January transfer window.
“Southampton’s whole XI would’ve been worthy winners of the Man of the Match award, however, it was Victor Wanyama who really stood out today, marshalling the middle of the park with ease and highlighting all the qualities that Arsenal lack,” the website reported.
It published some tweets from Arsenal fans who saw their side slip to sixth, three points adrift of the Saints in the table following the defeat and archrivals Tottenham Hotspurs magnificent 5-3 win over log leaders Chelsea later Thursday.
Southampton profited from Arsenal’s shaky defending for both goals with Sadio Mane profiting from a Wojciech Szczesny error and then the Pole involved again – with some assistance from Mathieu Debuchy – for Dusan Tadic’s goal which killed off the tie early in the second-half.
