Thomas Vermaelen

Our guest this time is Thomas Vermaelen, the captain who lifted our first trophy for nine years when we won the FA Cup in 2014. The Belgian defender tells us about playing at Highbury and in the Dennis Bergkamp Testimonial for former club Ajax before joining Arsenal in 2009. Thomas relives the highs of his stunning debut season, when he scored eight goals and was named in the Team of the Season, and also talks about his days struggling with injury, whether the team lacked maturity, and his eventual departure to Barcelona in 2014.
