Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger didn’t announce the press of any injury defensive midfielder Alex Song might have sustained before the game, and as we know, the Frenchman usually leaves out players who are about to leave the club, so where’s the truth?
The certain thing is that Barcelona have made their interest in Song public, and several players from the Catalan team have announced their wish to see the Cameroon international play alongside them.
Arsene Wenger has already managed to lose Robin, and we all know that it’s hard for him to keep a player when it comes to offers from clubs like Barcelona. When asked about Robin Van Persie’s leave, Wenger declared:
‘When a player doesn’t want to stay you either force him or you let him go.’
So it’s now all up to the Frenchman. Should he force Song to stay, or let him go? If Song would be a half-decent person, he would stay without a doubt. When he joined Arsenal he had the technique abilities of a drunken cab driver, and only Wenger’s vision and persistence made him the world-class player he is today, so what will it be Alex?
It seems that we were much more intuitive then we thought, as the Gunners have announced on their official website that Song will be heading to Barcelona. An official statement read:
“Arsenal Football Club can confirm that terms have been agreed for the transfer of Alex Song to Barcelona.
Song will now travel to the Catalan club to agree personal terms and undergo a medical ahead of the proposed move.”
What’s your take on this? Do you agree with Song’s decision?
