Roeder Defends His Striker

Roeder Defends His Striker

The good news for Glenn Roeder is that Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins is back in training after missing the last five matches with a hamstring injury, and could make the side on Saturday.

Martins, the big money signing from Italian side Inter Milan who took over the famous number nine shirt, says he hopes to be in the side to face Arsenal.

Roeder: 'He has struggled in the Premiership, but don't forget he was only 22 recently and he is still relatively young. He has come from a different league and a different culture, and we have to be more tolerant as far as he is concerned.

'Nobby Solano tells me it took him three or four months to settle in, while Thierry Henry did not have an immediate impact when he first joined Arsenal.



'But Arsene Wenger was patient with him - and the rest, as they say, is history. And when we go to the Emirates Stadium, in Henry we will be facing one of the three best strikers in the world today.

'Oba wants to play for us and wants to be out there at the Emirates Stadium.'
