Who remembers Yaya Sanogo?

The tall, lanky French forward joined Arsenal in 2013 and Arsene Wenger had high hopes for him. He scored a very good goal against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League and many felt we have a brilliant player on our hands.

That belief didn’t last long. After multiple failed loan spells, Arsenal released Sanogo in 2017. He joined Toulouse on a free transfer and after three seasons there, he was without a club again.

Sanogo spent the last seven months searching for a new club. He failed time and time again due to various reasons, but finally, the football gods have answered his prayers, and he has made his way back to England.

Huddersfield Town announced yesterday that Sanogo had joined the club until the end of the season.

The Terriers, who were in the Premier League not too long ago, are 19th in the Championship at the moment. There are growing fears around the club about potentially getting relegated, which would be a real shame.

Arsenal fans are shocked that Huddersfield Town have taken such a huge gamble on Sanogo. However, many have wished the former Gunners striker the very best in his spell in West Yorkshire.

Here’s how a few fans reacted on Twitter
