Gael Clichy has recently signed a 5 year contract to stay at the club, a reward for hard work and determination. Sterling performances which have catipulted the player into being described as the best left back in the world - the PFA left back of the year, a more than adequate replacement for the previous "Arsenal fan" left back... whom we need not talk about further...
When Roma and Juventus enquired about the young Frenchman, he didn't even want to know about what they were offering... his statement shows his passion for the club:
I told my agents that I did not want to talk about anything because my goal was to stay at Arsenal. In my head it was always clear: I wanted to stay at Arsenal so I did not have to look any further or to wonder who wanted me.
Gael, you’ve won the hearts of many, a goal or two next season and you’re surely on the way to becoming an Arsenal legend. (By a goal or two, I mean the winner in the Champions League final, a volley against Real Madrid and a winner against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge which sees us go 10 points clear with 5 games to go)….
And to top it all off, our darling Cesc Fabregas has launched an attack on former club Barcelona about they way they do there business. He’s an Arsenal man through and through isn’t he?
A club like Barcelona must respect a little more the intimacy of a club that never makes ‘noise’ and that tries to do things well like Arsenal.
In the last few weeks it’s come out that Barcelona want at least 7 players from Arsenal and this is not necessary. These things cast doubts on our players and upsets them.
Arsenal do things in a different way. Always in secret. This is much more normal.
Well, Cesc – that really is a sterling statement, especially considering your connection to the club in question. It proves that Cesc is a truly mature man who isn’t lured around by false carrots, but understands how football should be played and how clubs should be run. Future captain, no doubt.
I’ll leave you with those thoughts and let you have a happy day… more later, adios.]]>
