Wenger hails Vermaelen attitude

Thomas Vermaelen is set to return to Arsenal's defence against Norwich after being benched due to his performance in the defeat at Tottenham.

But his manager Arsene Wenger has praised the Belgian's attitude to get back into the first-team.

"He is a great man first of all and a great fighter, a winner."

"Thomas fights to find his place back, so he gains even more respect, sometimes you gain more respect when you don't play than when you play. His attitude has been absolutely marvellous."
