Arsenal’s manager didn’t seem to learn too much out of his experiences and now he’s targeting yet another very young unknown footballer. Youssef Msakni is rendered to be the “Tunisian Lionel Messi”, but how is Wenger going to fight against Barcelona’s Messi with this young kid?
Everybody likes to see a young talended young lad grow into the Arsenal jersey like Wilshere or Chamberlain seem to do and end up like Robin, but let’s face the odds here and let’s be realistic about the host of talented youngsters which have joined the club but fell short on everybody’s expectations.
Some of them were just not good enough in time and others were just too fragile and after sustained injuries they weren’t able to perform at the same level anymore. It was the same with Ramsey who after an injury break still doesn’t seem as good as he previously was, the same with Frimpong, Aliadiere and a bunch of others who weren’t able to show their skills due to tough injuries.
So when is Wenger going to change his ways and understand that you can’t always go chasing for youth players and that experienced ones like Arteta for example are much better for both the short and the long run in some cases?
