DID YOU KNOW ?

At age 13, Diaby signed a youth contract with the professional capital club Paris Saint-Germain, despite being a Marseille supporter.

Diaby was capped 14 times for the France U-19 side, captaining the team in their successful U-19 European Championship campaign in 2005.

Before joining Arsenal, Diaby reportedly turned down a move to Arsenal's London rivals, Chelsea.

At Arsenal he was given the number 2 shirt, vacant since the retirement of Lee Dixon.
