The ex-Arsenal star Alex Song was surprisingly sold to Barcelona this summer, but is hoping that he is given a chance to return to the Emirates after tomorrow’s Champions League draw, but assures his new team that they will have no problem coming away from Arsenal with a win.
The Cameroon international said yesterday: “Of course I would like to play against Arsenal. For me to go back there, where I had seven magnificent years, would be something very special,”
“If we draw Arsenal I’d be happy to see the fans again and go back to the club, even though if we go there it will be to get the best result possible.
“Arsenal’s a big club, but Barcelona’s a level above because of the talent of the players there.
“That’s no disrespect to Arsenal because they have talented players, but I think the Barcelona players are above them. I saw a lot of people come and a lot of people go at Arsenal.”
He couldn’t help the little dig at Wenger there at the end, but the fact is that he is probably right, Barcelona ARE a level above Arsenal. I certainly don’t want to meet Song’s new team in the next round. Do you?
