Clichy Working Hard To Replace Cole
Since Ashley 'I almost crashed my Bentley' Cole buggered off in the summer, Gael Clichy has stepped up to the plate like we always knew he could.
After spending many a year in the shadow of Ashley Cole, then a year dogged by injury, Clichy is finally getting the chance he so richly deserves, and the boy is doing well.
'I have to keep working hard in training because I know how quickly things can change in football,' he said.
'Maybe tomorrow there will be some new left-back and Arsenal may want to sign him - so I am working hard to make sure that the boss does not feel he needs to go out and buy someone else in the summer.'
'My first two seasons here were good, but Ashley was there so I was on the bench a lot. Then last season was difficult for me with all the injuries.'
'But now I am just enjoying the time I get to play on the pitch.'
