OK Arsene, “The banks insisted that you stay for 5 years to secure funding for the Stadium?” by KD
So prove it.
OK, on the BBC website, Wenger has come out with what has surely got to be one of the most ludicrous statements the man has ever made: “When we built the stadium the banks demanded that I signed for five years,” said the Arsenal manager. “Do you want me to say how many clubs I turned down during that period?”
Look personally, I think the guy has seriously lost it. I mean seriously, as in I think he may have a medical condition that needs treatment. Look I am not trying to imply this in any way, but it is a fact that something like an STD untreated creates mental problems.
But whether you like him, agree with him or want him gone, surely it is not an unreasonable request to ask him to provide proof of these statements?
so which bank asked him to stay? What was the name of the person so that he can be contacted for verification? Is this written in the loan documents? Banks do not make conditional loans without making sure that those conditions are in writing.
Was this “requirement “written down in any way? Contract documents, letter to club, email? Or was is via a phone call?
Similarly, yes I would like you to say how many clubs you turned down. Which clubs were they and as above, is there written proof of this? Are there emails, letters etc.? Or again was it perhaps phone calls? Even phone calls can be traced.
Look, many of us in the Wenger Out brigade feel that the man has been deceiving us for a long time now, so this is the perfect opportunity for Wenger to prove to us that he is not full of it.
It’s quite simple, give us the specific details and names to back up your statements.
On the other hand, if it is, as I suspect BS, then it just adds further proof to the mounting evidence that everything he says is rubbish and at odds with the facts.
