Arsene Wenger has finally come out and critisized Eboue for his behavior in the North London derby. The Ivorian midfielder was sent off for a second yellow card after just around half an hour into the match.
“He had in this game problems to deal with his frustrations and therefore of course we want to play a part … in helping to deal with that. The other players want to help their partners to deal with frustrations, but you as well are responsible for the own way you deal with it. He didn’t sense how far you can go. Once he had the first yellow card that was a bit unfortunate. But the second one, you cannot complain.”
Good to see Wenger admitting his player’s mistake. He sure needs a nice long chat with Eboue and teach him how to behave like a professional.
You can see an interview of Eboue regarding his relationship with fans here.
Eboue may be one of the worst performer of Arsenal lately and Nasri is one of the best right now. But one problem for the summer recruit lately has been his lack of goals. He hasn’t scored at home since the brace against Manchester United and his last goal came almost a month back on 17th January against Hull. So the player must be short of confidence but Arsene Wenger is backing him fully:
“Nasri is meant to have a bright future with Arsenal. He is the kind of player that can score, dribble and there is more to come from him, even if I think that he has settled pretty well.
“Creative players are essential in our style of football. People tend to forget that Pires arrived at the age of 27, and Samir was 21. Yes, he reminds me of him, but he can also play in a more central position.”
Nasri’s form is vital for helping Arsenal’s challenge for the final Champions League place especially his goal scoring because in recent games goals have been very hard to come by.
Meanwhile Robin van Persie’s form of a lifetime is making him attract interest from top European Clubs already. Now it’s Inter Milan who, according to The Daily Mirror, are interested in signing the Arsenal forward. van Persie’s will have just a year of his contract left this summer and contract negotiations going on haven’t had much success, as is being rumored with the player and the club failing to agree on the wages. It’s too early for such a rumor. There’s a lot of months remaining this season and if Arsenal end up winning a trophy, the scenario might completely change so we should wait for the summer to see if there is any truth in this rumor.
And by the way guys really sorry about that last post. It was meant to be a funny article but I guess I have a bad sense of humor:( Well at least now I now so I wont try doing it again. Thanks for letting it known. It’s your comments that help me in improving.
