Afternoon all, and it’s yet another sunny day down here in London – it really is quite summery!
So, it’s now week 3 of no real football and it’s starting to feel very weird not seeing Arsenal in action… nevertheless, we’re in the middle of many transfers and a bit of footy thanks to the Masters, The Confederations Cup and of course, the European Under 21 Championships, which kicks off tonight.
As you may or may not be aware, Philippe Senderos, will be returning to Arsenal after Milan decided not to take up the option of signing him permanently. At the end of the season, he declared he wanted to stay at the San Siro, but it looks like his wish will not be granted.
“I feel very good here and I would like to stay. I know that the decision does not depend on me, but on the two clubs. At the beginning it was a little difficult because of the injury I suffered and I wanted to show my qualities by starting well, but injuries are a part of football. I have worked extensively with the coach and I have always had the support of my peers and the club and this helped me a lot for the second part of the season where I played a little more.”
It’s been difficult for the Swiss defender, as it seems like Arsene has lost confidence in the stopper, having decided to play Alex Song at the latter part of the season before last, ahead of Senderos. The boss eventually loaning out the young defender to Milan – a step which confirmed that he was no longer in his plans. He spoke this weekend and said:
“It depends on Arsenal. I want to continue at Milan because I cannot see a place for me with the Gunners.”
