- Our former right-back Justin Hoyte reminisces on his time with the Arsenal.
- He thinks back to the time Arsenal pieced a 49-game unbeaten run together.
- Hoyte singles out Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira for outstanding individual quality.
Our former right-back Justin Hoyte is in awe from Invincibles, picking Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira as two of the most influential during that campaign.
“[Dennis] Bergkamp was unbelievable, just a great player who saw everything before anyone else," he told Goal.com
“[Patrick] Vieira was the leader who led by example. He looked after everybody, whether it be the first-team players, the youth-team players or all the staff members. He looked after them and made sure they were well.
“For me, that was the sort of leader it took to make that sort of run. You needed someone like that for everyone else to look up to.”
Hoyte was an Arsenal player for six seasons (between 2002/03 and 2007/08), spending one of those on loan at Sunderland. He made a solitary appearance in the 03/04 unbeaten campaign.
