Bastia have confirmed that Sebastien Squillaci will be unveiled tomorrow afternoon as the club’s new number 5.
The former French international was released by the Gunners at the end of June and has spent the last couple of weeks training with amateur side Hyères while completing negotiations with the Ligue 1 club.
The 32-year-old should have a few miles left in the tank after a restful three-year spell in North London which saw him only make
46 39 appearances.
There were highlights, a winner against Stoke comes to mind, while he also goes down in Gunners history as the player to captain Arsenal with the fewest games to his name. He did so against Chelsea on only his sixth appearance…
Anyway best of luck to the Squid in Corsica. He follows in the footsteps of Johnny Rep, Roger Milla, Michael Essien and err…Alex Song.
