Despite the defeat, Sambi Lokonga’s debut was promising. Solid, claiming the ball, with little or no fouls. He saved the most amazing post-match moments. The former Anderlecht player – for 20 million for Arsenal – came to explain it to the cameras of Sky Sports – the Premier League rights holder – and other international rights holders. Neither captain Granit Xhaka nor veterans Bernd Leno and Callum Chambers – have been with the club for years.
So when the press secretary asked to speak to reporters, Lokonga didn’t say no. In general, Belgians are very much required to be sent to the media – they are trained to know what to say and especially what not to say.

The series about Michael Jordan on Netflix (‘The Last Dance’, editor) inspired me,” he previously said of that character. to our newspaper.
