‘We saw a very good face of Arsenal’

Laurent Koscielny says “we saw a very good face of Arsenal” in Tuesday night’s Champions League victory against Bayern Munich.

The France international was in fine form as the Gunners put in a resolute defensive display to inflict the Bundesliga champions' first defeat this season.

Koscielny was proud of the team’s performance and says that is the benchmark for the rest of the season.
“Defensively we were together like a unit, we defended to help our team-mates and we played on the counter-attack,” he told Arsenal Player. 

 “I think we were good and we had a lot of potential to score.

“Bayern hadn’t lost a game this season so it was very hard and tough for us but sometimes you need to play differently and everybody in front [of the defence] did their job well - it was very good and we need to keep this for the season.

“You can see the team were very focused in their defensive job and it is very important to keep this for the rest of the season because for the first two games of the Champions League we did not play very well.

“But here we saw a very good face of Arsenal and we need to keep this for the other games because I like I said before sometimes it is more difficult but you need to be stronger when you defend.”

Mwanamke adakwa 'Sauzi' akiuza mwanawe

A South African mother appeared in court Friday charged with trying to sell her 19-month-old baby on the Internet for 5,000 rand (Sh39,000) officials said, after a police sting operation halted her plan.

Police were tipped off that the woman, aged 20, had offered her son for sale on the popular advertising website Gumtree.

“We met her and there was an exchange of money with an undercover police officer,” Hangwani Mulaudzi, spokesman for the Hawks special crimes investigation unit, told AFP.

The woman appeared in court in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal province, on human trafficking charges, and her case was adjourned until October 26.

“Gumtree South Africa’s customer service team was alerted that a young woman had placed an ad on the site advertising a child for sale,” company spokeswoman Claire Cobbledick said in a statement.

“The team immediately removed the ad and blocked the user’s account. (We) escalated the issue to the corporate office that engages law enforcement on suspected criminal cases.”

The child was in good health and has been taken into care by social workers.

Gabriel: 'I Have Seen Death, I've Been Robbed'

Gabriel says he is “proud” to have given his mother a better life after a tough upbringing in Brazil.
The defender grew up in the south of Sao Paulo and lived in a dangerous neighbourhood plagued by crime and poverty.

Gabriel says his desire to help his mother escape the area gave him the motivation he needed to succeed as a footballer.

“She lived in a shack in a favela,” he told Arsenal Player. “I talk about it because I am not ashamed of saying it, and today I am proud of being able to help her, to give her a better life, and me as well because I always dreamed about it. Thanks to God, things are coming true.

“I have seen many things on the outdoor neighbourhood pitches. I have seen death, I have witnessed robberies, I’ve been robbed in Sao Paulo. I’ve seen many things. I practically grew up with this. But thanks to God I took a path in my life because, for all that I have seen, for the bad things I have witnessed, my life could have been very different.

“But I was strong. I thought about my mother’s story and told myself that my mother couldn’t go through this anymore. She can’t, she must have a better life. So thanks to God I took a different path and am here today. I am fulfilling a dream I had since I was little, and thanks to God things are moving in the right direction.”

 Gabriel joined a long line of Brazilians who have used football to escape poverty, and he is hoping his story can inspire the next generation of youngsters to make a similar journey.

“Everybody knows about the corruption happening, and every day is a surprise,” he said. 

 “So I think Brazilians don’t like seeing that, but the kids have so many opportunities to play. Every neighbourhood has a football academy for the kids to follow this path, which is something I also want for the neighbourhood where I was born.

“I want to serve as a mirror to them, for them to see that I have gone through difficult times and managed to do it, and see that they can do it too. It’s not just me. If you work hard and respect the people above us, you can do it.”
