Martin Angha: Off to Nurnberg in the summer

The versatile Swiss 19-year-old is mainly a centre-back but is capable of playing anywhere across the back four.

He made his first-team debut for the Gunners at right-back in a 6-1 Capital One Cup win over Coventry last September and then made an appearance in the Champions League, coming off the bench in a 2-1 loss at Olympiacos.

Angha has also played for Switzerland at several age-group levels and will now look to further his career in Germany.

Nurnberg sports director Martin Bader said: "Martin Angha has been brought to a top level of football at Arsenal over the last few years.

"He has shown his potential in London and will make the next steps in his development at FCN. We're delighted to have signed such an interesting, young player.

"We've had our eye on him for a long time, he matches our idea of a player who could flourish."

Angha added: "I had a great time in London and thank Arsenal for everything they've done. Now I'm looking forward to the challenge of playing for FCN."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

W

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
