Well Arsenal have officially confirmed that Sol Campbell will be playing for Arsenal Reserves tonight, and talks are ongoing over a permanent move back to the club he left in 2006.
And on the same day, it appears Senderos will be leaving after he publicly declared that he wants to move on, with the World Cup around the corner.
Well it’s a strange one. Wenger notoriously never returns to players that have left the club and for a 35-year old as well is even more mind-boggling.
“He has a fantastic attitude and good fitness.
“Of course he is not the youngest, but he is in a very good shape. He can still play in the Premier League, I’ve said that many times.
“He is important in the dressing room as well. He’s positive with the young players.
“Every year we have one or two like that and I think a Premier League club will sign him.”
We needed cover at the back, so to let a 24-year old Senderos leave is strange. Surely he’s a better option than Silvestre and Campbell – has he really become that much of a poor player since 2006? Remember Senderos is the guy Wenger was considering for Arsenal captain before Thierry Henry was elected!
Why is Senderos so out of favour?
Strange news to say the least.
Especially as Patrick Vieira was available – we need some presence in midfield without Fabregas and Song!
