Arsenal fans would have been heading into Thursday night’s clash against Rennes fearing the worst but it was a brilliant performance from the majority of their men at the Emirates. While it might have been Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who stole the headlines with his goal scoring performance the Gunners faithful were left in awe with what they saw from the man lining up at left back – Sead Kolasinac. There is no doubting that the 25-year-old can be a top class performer on his day but he has been known to lack the required consistency to make a difference. Not on Thursday night. The defender was immense at both ends of the pitch, keeping the French side at bay with some important blocks and tackles while there are not enough words to describe how impressive he was in attack. His cross for his side’s third goal was a thing of wonder and had it been someone like Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo whipping that ball in, the world would have taken notice. Because it is only the Europa League it might not pick up the same plaudits but the Arsenal faithful are rightly drooling over his efforts. What a performance this was and what a signing he has been for the Gunners – remember, he arrived on a free transfer.
This is Futbol has gathered a selection of the supporters’ tweets:
Kolasinac please never leave. What a crosser of the ball.
