Alex Song denies he wants to leave Barca to return to Arsenal

The Cameroonian midfielder Alexander Song, has been the subject of many reports in Spain saying that he was unhappy with the amount of playing time he is getting at Barcelona, and would be keen to return to Arsenal to regain his regular place in the team.

But the player himself has now denied any such wish, and although he respectfully says that Arsenal are a very good team, they just don’t quite measure up to Barcelona in the world rankings, and we can’t really disagree with that right now can we?

Song said: “It is a pleasure to be in the club. A lot of people would like to play here, so I’m a lucky person.”

“Arsenal have good players, but this club has the best (Leo Messi). I’m not saying that the Arsenal don’t have quality players, because they do, but Barca is the best team in the world.”

I don’t suppose that there are very many Barcelona players that would want to come to Arsenal right now, but I’m sure If Messi came first then a few more might follow!

Song also revealed that he still keeps in touch with Arsene Wenger, which goes to disprove the rumours that he left on bad terms, but not only that but Song also praised the Frenchman and told Arsenal fans not to lose faith in him. “He’s the right man,” Song Said.

“I spent eight years with him and he’s just unbelievable. I still keep in touch with him and the last time I met him he was very happy. Hopefully he’ll stay longer at Arsenal because if they lose him today then they won’t be the same.”

If only Wenger could get that elusive trophy that the fans have been waiting for for the last eight years, then the fans would all be right behind him again. One thing that Song can say is that he will win a title-winning medal this year, despite only starting 15 games for the Spanish Champions. Why should he want to return to the UK?

    I honestly wouldn’t mind Song back in our squad. People forget that he was our most consistent player for years. This is what we are missing – CONSISTENCY. I would sure as hell play him before Ramsey any day.

    I have always liked song and never stopped liking him. He was sold to balance the books. He never wanted to leave. Anyway, I wish him luck. He was the only tough guy we had in midfield and every team needs one or two tough guys who don’t mind picking up a necessary booking for the good of the team.

    I worry about our lack of spending.

    Wenger won’t even buy a new coat.
    Look at Kroenke’s cheap wig. He found that in a bin.

    So Song thinks that he is bigger than Arsenal now? Poor Man, please stay at Barca and rot on the bench and count for injuries to play games as long as you are wearing the BARCA SHIRT! HHhhhm poor man!

    F*ck him, let him rot in the bench and get suceeded by a barca youth product, coz barca clearly favour their own products over anything which is understandable. He was bought as an assurance anyways.

    Hey guys, regarding Cesc, I was thinking that it would be improbable that Barca sell him, but they might agree to a loan deal. Do you think that is a more realistic possibility than a sell?

    This bunch of failures will always tell us Arsene Wenger is the best because of the way he indulged and pampered them while playing for Arsenal. Rvp is working like jack at Man U becos Sir Ferguson will not tolorate bullsh*t like Wenger does. Continue to rotten on the bench Song.

    Song has started lots a of games this season , even cesc. Barca are not like arsenal where the squad is not good enough. Our best player cant play every game for them. Only kosieny will start for barca so i dont see the reason why we should insult him. we Have no ambition its simple. Your second best player ask for 70k a week and u say no. well he will be winning his trophy this year. What have we won???? NOTHING

    Song is singing a different tune now (yes, pun intended) that he understands that Wenger, and a lot of fans don’t want him back. Stay with the “best” team, and your “best” player, and keep warming the bench.
