Wenger speaks out on Rosicky retirement rumours! Tomas Rosicky will not join the Czech Republic squad for this international break as he has not yet resumed full training. The 32-year old had to have an operation after picking up an Achilles problem playing for his country in Euro 2012. Arsene Wenger estimates that he will be back in full training in around three week’s time and has denied that he has been trying to persuade the midfielder to retire from international football in order to prolong his career at the Emirates. Rumours have appeared that Rosicky was on the verge of announcing that his international career was over and reporters were suggesting that the Arsenal manager was behind it. Wenger has said that there is absolutely no truth in it whatsoever. “I never did that. Look at the number of players I brought in to national teams. “I face the same question in France. When I look at the number of players I got in to the national team under me, it is quite amazing. I never tried to covince ...
Arsene Wenger has revealed how summer signings Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud will not be fit enough to start the new Premier League season for Arsenal. The attacking duo, who arrived at the Emirates Stadium for a combined £24million fee, both returned to pre-season training late after the European Championships, and so missed the Gunners' tour of Asia. Having now reported back for training in north London, Wenger has warned the club's fans that they may have to wait a while before seeing Arsenal's newest recruits in action. "Podolski and Giroud may take longer than expected," explained the Frenchman. "I cannot play them in pre-season so I will ease them into the Premier League." Asked to shed light on the fitness and futures of a number of his first-team players, Wenger revealed his intentions to sell the likes of Nicklas Bendtner, Ju Young Park, and Sebastien Squillaci, but indicated that Andrey Arshavin may still have a future at Arsenal. "Bendtner, Squillaci and Park will be on their way to go som ...
Arsene Wenger says it is impossible for a footballer to play in both the European Championships and the Olympics Games.
Olivier Giroud can't wait to complete his £13million move to Arsenal, admitting he'll fulfill a 'dream' by playing in the Barclays Premier League. The France international is poised to join Lukas Podolski as Arsene Wenger's second major signing of the summer following France's exit from the European Championships. Giroud scored 25 goals for his club last season to help Montpellier win the Ligue 1 title, igniting the interest of several top clubs.
Arsenal boss Wenger blasts Dutch critics of Van Persie Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has hit out at Dutch critics of Robin Van Persie. The Dutch football public want Van Persie dropped and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar selected as Holland’s main striker. Wenger said: “Robin Van Persie deserves more credit in Holland than he gets. I think he was still the best striker at the European Championships. “I watched all his games. If you look at the runs he made, his passing, everything really, was very good. He did not take some of his chances but that was down to tiredness. Robin is a class above other strikers. A class above Huntelaar.” Wenger who, after the Euros, will make a final attempt to get Van Persie to sign a new deal with the Gunners, went on: “Robin is not just a great striker or a great player. He is an exceptional player. “He did not have to prove himself here. I can understand he wanted to prove that he can score goals for Holland. That is an obvious ambition because he is so intense, he loves the ...
hat according to L'Equipe, a deal to bring Olivier Giroud to Arsenal for €12 million could be completed by the end of this week. Giroud has been a frequent link to the Emirates in recent months, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stepped up his recruitment of the striker in recent weeks. According to Spiro, Wenger made his move for the 2011-12 Ligue 1 top goalscorer (21 goals, along with nine assists) over the weekend and set the chains in motion for a transfer. While Arsenal's Premier League rivals, Queen Park Rangers, have made a higher offer to the Montpellier hit man, Giroud is said to have his heart set on a move to the Gunners. The prospect of competing with Arsenal captain and returning EPL leading scorer Robin Van Persie doesn't daunt Giroud, who is said to be relishing in the prospect of a potential partnership with the Dutch striker at the head of the Gunners' attack. Currently at the European Championships with France, Giroud has instructed his entourage to deal with all transfer matters, ...
Nicklas Bendtner has confirmed he is talking to several clubs about a transfer away from Arsenal. The Danish striker was loaned out to Sunderland by Arsene Wenger this season and is not likely to stay at the Emirates. Bendtner will wait until after the upcoming European Championships to finalise his future. Other players Wenger is considering showing the door are Denilson, Sebastien Squillaci and Johan Djourou.
Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna will miss Euro 2012 after fracturing his right leg in Saturday's fixture with Norwich at the Emirates Stadium. Sagna, 29, only returned from a break to the same leg in January, having clattered into an advertising hoarding following a tackle with Benoit Assou-Ekotto in October's fixture with Tottenham. This latest injury setback means that Sagna will miss this summer's European Championships, with Lille's Mathieu Debuchy likely to deputise in the Arsenal man's absence. The injury is a bitter blow to Arsenal's hopes of claiming third place, with Sagna's return in January coinciding with the good form that saw them shoot up the league standings. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said: "It is broken fibula, the same leg. He was kicked on it, it has not happened alone. "When he was kicked, he has broken the leg. The guy closed him down and walked on him. I dont know if it was deliberate or not
Arsene Wenger has revealed Jack Wilshere will miss the rest of the season and is out of this summer's European Championships.
Arsène Wenger says the next three weeks will decide whether Jack Wilshere plays for Arsenal this season. The England midfielder has not made a first-team appearance since last summer's Emirates Cup after undergoing surgery in September. Wilshere has made steady progress in his rehabilitation but Wenger insists Arsenal will not take a gamble on his fitness. "We will know in the next two or three weeks [if he will play this season]," said the manager. "We try to keep the hope alive for him and not take too many risks. That means we adapt day to day, to manage him, to improve his physical state and get him fit as quickly as we can without taking too big a risk. That means when he has irritation or discomfort we stop him." Wilshere became a mainstay of the England set-up last season but it remains to be seen whether he will be fit for the European Championships in June. "We are now at the end of March, that means to go to a big competition without having played at all is impossible," said Wenger. "The next t ...
Jack Wilshere has until the end of April to stake his claim for a place at the European Championships, according to Arsene Wenger.
