Arsenal are a big family who will always be in Alex Song’s heart, says the Cameroonian midfielder.
Song, who is currently on loan at West Ham from Barcelona, made his name with the Gunners and says he is indebted to Arsene Wenger’s side.
But he will play against his former club when the Gunners travel to Upton Park on Sunday.
He told Sky Sports: “Always, this big family will be in my heart. I’ll never forget because what I am now is because of Arsenal, but now it’s important to play against them.
“We’ll enjoy the game, it’s not easy when you play your old team. I just have to do my job.
“Right now, I’m a West Ham player and will focus on that game. We know it’s not easy, but I will try to help my team win the game.”
