Arsenal loanee, Folarin Balogun, believes life in France is hardening him.

The striker was told to go and “become a man” by Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta.

While he had chances to go to a club in the Championship in England, he chose France instead, despite not speaking the language.

“Before I moved, Mikel said he wanted me to develop as a man. It was kind of like an open answer and for me to interpret what me meant by develop as a man,” he said.

He added: “I realised there were certain things I would struggle with but I think that’s a good thing.
