Flamini has been a fantastic addition this season in Arsenal’s squad. He is considered by some as the most influential free signing for Arsenal. His inclusion in the squad has not only been potent on the field but off the field he has been doing a brilliant job in lifting up the spirits of the players who are hungry for a silverware this season.
Arsenal have made it to Wembley for the semi-finals of the FA Cup after coming through a tough encounter against Everton with a rather flattering 4-1 scoreline.
Goals from Mesut Ozil, Mikel Arteta and a double from substitute Olivier Giroud proved enough despite Romelu Lukaku’s goal and a superb performance from Ross Barkley in the Toffees midfield.
Of course Flamini has been away for a while. He re-joined the club on a free transfer this summer after six years away at AC Milan.
It was his 30th birthday yesterday and he spoke to ITV when he recalled the memories of the 2005 glory when they defeated Manchester United.
“It Beautiful or maybe magic. At the time there was players like (Dennis) Bergkamp (Thierry) Henry; major players which was a huge advantage. We went to the final of the Champions League and the way we lost, it was hard. I still have it in the back of my mind it is something that I don’t think I will ever forget.”
