Kanu's Hat-trick surprised me - Wenger

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger says he was surprised by Kanu’s “special” hat-trick in Arsenal Legends’ 4-2 win against Milan Glorie on Saturday.

The forward scored two headers before getting his third with a well-taken penalty, and Arsenal boss says he didn’t expect such a performance from the former Nigeria international. Even though the former Ajax of Amsterdam play-maker was great during  his playing days for the Gunners; being a member of the invincible squad that won the Premier League title unbeaten.

“The surprise was Kanu, because nobody knew where he played and he turned up with something special again,” he said. “Players like Freddie Ljungberg and Robert Pires are still completely fit, and Kolo Toure I’m not surprised about because he still plays for Celtic.

“The class has not gone, the quality has not gone – the legs a little bit! But not too much, they had enough resources to make the game enjoyable. It is a great afternoon and that shows our values at the club because we raised one million pounds for the charity and we can be very proud of that.”
