Robert Pires backs Stephan Lichtsteiner to be an important signing for Arsenal
The Switzerland international spent the best part of a decade in Turin and helped Juve win seven Serie A titles.
He confirmed earlier in the season that he would not be signing a contract extension, however, and joined the Gunners this week on a free transfer.
Lichtsteiner became Unai Emerys first signing as the new Arsenal manager and Pires believes he will flourish at the Emirates.
I met Stephan and I think this is a good player for Arsenal, Pires told Goal at the Arsenal 2018-19 away kit launch event in London.
Some people are talking about the age, but I dont care about this.
If hes ready and wants to help Arsenal then hes a good solution for Arsenal and Unai Emery.
We need a player like him because he will bring spirit and is a very good professional.
Hes a good warrior on the field so thats why its an important signing for Arsenal.
Lichtsteiner, who signed a short-term deal with the Gunners, will provide competition and cover for right-back Hector Bellerin.
Asked why he decided to leave Juventus and sign for the Premier League club, the 34-year-old said: There is a project to come back in the Champions League.
I think its hard to see a club like Arsenal not playing in the Champions League if you see the players, club and stadium. The big objective is to come back on the highest level.
