Former Arsenal star says new England role WRONG for Wilshere

Despite playing at the top level of football in England for years and winning a hatful of medals with Arsenal, including being a big part of the incredible invincibles season of 2003-04, Ray Parlour never managed to hold down a place with the England national team.

The 41-year old did win 10 international caps in a two year period but his one chance of playing in a tournament, Euro 2000, was wrecked by a knee injury and his England career fizzled out once Sven-Goran Eriksson took over from Kevin Keegan as England manager.

Ray Parlour – The biggest signing Arsenal need this summer……

The Arsenal legend Ray Parlour, who played for the Gunners for twelve glorious years, has spoken out about the most important player for Arsenal to sign this season; Robin Van Persie!

The Arsenal captain scored (as usual) in last nights 2-1 win over Newcastle which puts the Gunners just one point behind Tottenham in third place, and there is no doubt that they would be nowhere near that position without Captain Vantastic leading the team from the front.

“He’s in a very strong position with one year left on his contract.” Parlour said.
