It was never likely for Arsenal to use our young French international striker Yaya Sanogo as a first team player this season. And the fact that the tall 22-year old was not one of the fringe players included in the Arsenal squad for the pre-season visit to Singapore to play in the Barclays Asia trophy confirmed this.
But Arsene Wenger has always had high hopes for the striker and is clearly not ready to give up him just yet. The loan move to Crystal Palace at the end of last season did not work out as well as we hoped, even though it did give Sanogo some more Premier League experience and allowed him to add an FA cup goal to the Champions League one he scored for us against Borussia Dortmund.
It is definitely his finishing that needs to improve though, as his all round game has been pretty effective for us when called on. So who better to learn from than one of the best strikers to ever put on a pair of football boots? And the fact that Dennis Bergkamp is the assistant manager at the Dutch club Ajax, where Sanogo is heading on loan according to a Metro report, will hopefully see the young Gunner get in the goals and come back to north London ready for more first team action.
Will Bergkamp get the best out of Sanogo or will this be the beginning of the end for his Arsenal career?
