In a statement about the signing, Wenger said “As you know, we have been monitoring every single player in the world 24/7 but have not been able to find anyone with any talent available within our £120 million budget. So we have had to little bit widen our net. ”
“Our chief negotiator Dick Law had a go on Google and found this picture of a guy who obviously already owned a kit, though admittedly from 1971. so we were decisive and made the deal.”
“I know he doesn’t have any footballing ability and, at age of 50, is a little bit old and unfit. Certainly he will play with the handbrake on little bit. But, that won’t matter. Like most of the team, I will make him play out of position. What is important is to be mentally strong. And anyway, I can blame the referee if we are unlucky and it doesn’t work out.”
“Ivan Gazidis and I are very excited. It is like a new signing“.
