“This has been the worst season of my life, and I am so upset,” he said. “I am a winner and I came here to win trophies but I’ve been here for five years and won nothing. Until Arsenal stop throwing away silly points in stupid games nothing will change.”
“I’ve simply been to see Arsène Wenger and told him how I felt and he’s agreed to let me go,” he told the Sun. “A footballer’s career is over very quickly so it is time for me to move on. I made up my mind eight months ago. I was fed up of coming home and feeling down.”
“I need a fresh challenge. It’s great to play beautiful football but sometimes you have to play ugly if you want to succeed.”
“I can’t see myself returning in a Chelsea shirt, or Liverpool or Manchester City – and definitely not Tottenham,” he said. “I think my future will be in Italy or Spain.”
This whole interview makes me laugh. He is one of the reasons we have been poor this season. In many games, for example Braga and West Brom, he was our worst player on the pitch.
Against Braga, he lost us the game on his own. Being taken down very, very easily for the second goal shows how weak he is at defending.
Against West Brom, I can’t remember a good pass he made in the first half before being taken off at half time.
Denilson also says he can’t picture himself in a Chelsea, Liverpool, Utd shirt;etc. I doubt any team in the top eight would want to sign him, except for Tottenham, of course.
