In the news today:
Arsenal midfielder, Denilson is on his way out of the Emirates after the his “worst” season of his career. Speaking to a journalist from The Sun, the 23 year old former Sao Paulo player said: A footballer’s career is over very quickly so it is time for me to move on. This has been the worst season of my life.
“I made up my mind eight months ago. But I haven’t said anything because I did not want to disrupt the team during the season.
“I’ve been to see Arsene Wenger and told him how I felt and he agreed to let me go. I know some people will think I’m crazy. They are right. It is a great club, with a great organisation, a great manager and so many talented players. I need a fresh challenge and although I’m taking a big gamble, I’m ready to take that risk.
“I am a footballer and I want to play every week because I want the chance to play for Brazil. Look at Lucas [Leiva] at Liverpool. He’s been playing regularly and he’s in the Brazil team. That’s where I want to be. I would love to be able to do that at Arsenal but based on how things have gone this season, I think it’s time for a change.
“So I am flying home to Brazil on Sunday and I’m hoping I can make a fresh start in Spain or maybe Italy.”
Following Arsenal’s Carling Cup final defeat against Birmingham City, Deilson said that he felt so upset that he cried. He added:”I am so upset. I am a winner and I came here to win trophies but I’ve been here for five years and won nothing.”
