Yaya Sanogo is hoping the future will bring a "complete season, without injury issues" following the news that Arsenal will not be renewing his contract.
The 24-year-old was limited to just 11 Premier League starts [210 minutes] after joining the Gunners from French side Auxerre four years ago. A series of niggling soft tissue injuries – hamstring and calf – saw Sanogo quickly fall down the pecking order before seeing out most of his current deal on-loan at Crystal Palace, Ajax and Charlton Athletic. Sanogo failed to fulfil his potential, as he continued to struggle due to his ongoing injury problems, the last of which kept him sidelined for almost seven months. However, Sanogo refused to blame Arsène Wenger for his injuries or a lack of minutes during his time at the Emirates: "He is not responsible. He is a great manager. He taught me a lot." Sanogo has been linked with a move to Serie A side Genoa after finishing the season playing for Arsenal Under-23s, the last of which saw him score a hat-trick in a 5-2 win at Reading. Jun 4 - 1:12 PM
