Arsene Wenger himself said that if he wanted to he could have commanded a much higher price for Cesc by auctioning him off to the worlds richest clubs but, knowing that he only wanted to play for Barca, he wouldnt do that. So why not sell him earlier on in the summer then?! Any way, I digress.
|As much for my girlfriend as anything :)|
His farewell to the club and thankyou to Arsene Wenger was also high class, acknowledging the part that Arsenal has played in his development. Again, this is something we dont see enough of these days.
I guess all that is left now is to say a very big thankyou for the eight years of high quality football that El Capitan gave us, maturing from boy to man, he led the team with pride, always playing with a swagger and extreme confidence and was a joy to watch. Adios El Capitan.
