103-cap Arsenal star – Why my age is just a number



Stephan Lichtsteiner

Arsenal right back, Stephan Lichtsteiner has claimed that his age is just a number that does not reflect his physicality on the field of play.

According to him, he looks and has the feeling that he is six years younger than his age.

At 34, the new Arsenal recruit has played nearly 600 games at club level as well as winning 103 caps for the Swiss national side; yet, he still looks ready to go.

Lichtsteiner became Unai Emery’s first signing of the season and fans thought it could not be the addition they needed but the manager said the Swiss beings experience to help the youthful Arsenal presence on the pitch.

While admitting that he could say goodbye to national team football, Lichtsteiner said he is not close to hanging his boot the performance data still give him the opportunity to play for more years.

Meanwhile, he is yet to secure a starting place in Emery’s team but has had just one appearance as a replacement for the injured Ainsley Maitland-Niles in the 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on the opening weekend.

The former Juventus player has been forced to the bench by youthful Hector Bellerin, whose attacking quality gives him an edge.
