Cedric outlines two key qualities Arsenal new boy Fabio Vieira has

Cedric Soares has been discussing one of Arsenal’s summer signings, Fabio Vieira.

Vieira was Arsenal’s first major signing of the 2022 summer transfer window, with his capture coming somewhat out of the blue.

The midfielder is believed to have set Arsenal back just over £34m following his transfer from FC Porto.

Vieira is an attacking midfielder by trade and is expected to provide competition for the likes of Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe.

Now, with Vieira having had just over a month to settle in at Arsenal, Cedric has been discussing his fellow countryman.

When doing so, the right-back was quick to highlight Vieira’s two key qualities, which are his courage and his intelligence:

“He has a similar mentality to me, which is great to see,” Cedric said. “I’m helping him to settle. Fabio is a very intelligent player from what I saw in Portugal. I never played with him but from what I saw, analysing games and watching his performances, he had a really good season. He has fantastic quality. He is a technical player with quality and ability. He has a lot of vision for the last pass as well. This quality that you look a lot for in the players, I think Fabio has got it. I am sure he will adapt quick, he is intelligent you know?

“When you are not physically the strongest, you need to be smart in the Premier League. I am sure he will adapt very well to the Premier League, I have no doubts. [The physicality of English football] is a big change, but me personally, I adapted quite well and I am not the tallest. With Fabio, first of all he has big courage to play. That one for me is a quality. Second one, I see him as a very intelligent player.

“Of course he is very young still, so I am sure he will grow in years in the Premier League. What is intense for him is maybe the rhythm of the Premier League will be much quicker than the rhythm of the league in Portugal. This is something he will have time to adapt, but you can’t change it.”
