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?
