Wenger confirms that Park, Squillaci and Bendtner are on their way out of Arsenal! By KJ
We’ve finally got some confirmation from Wenger on certain players to depart from Arsenal this summer. He’s highlighted that Chu-Young Park, Sebastian Squillaci and Niklas Bendtner are all on their way out of the Emirates.
Here are the quotes:
“Bendtner, Squillaci and Park will be on their way to go somewhere”
This is some amazing news and it is finally looking positive on an Arsenal front. With the deadwood being sold, we now have the licence to get new players into the squad (potentially Cazorla and Sahin).
Now, let’s have a quick summary on those 3 players confirmed to depart:
Squillaci: This man was nothing short of an astronomical disaster. He was a decent defender in Spain but the Premier League is a different beast and this beast just absolutely destroyed him. He couldn’t cope at all and was embarrassed constantly by average strikers. He was a train wreck in this league and it’s good riddance.
Park: He only had a year with the Gunners that involved just 5 appearances. I was very surprised that Wenger never actually used him, even when we were winning. When playing the likes of Blackburn and being 7-1 up, he still didn’t feel it was necessary to try Park Chu-Young. I felt he had potential, but Wenger knows things we don’t know and clearly deemed him not good enough.
Bendtner: He is a quality striker but has an attitude problem. He thinks he’s better than he actually is and hence he expects guaranteed football at Arsenal. That isn’t the case and now is looking to move so he can secure that for himself.
It’s great that Wenger is moving on the deadwood and potentially freeing up £150k on wages alone and most likely making £10 million from the sales of those 3 players. Good times as an Arsenal fan.
