Well then, we’ve reached the weekend and still the Emmanuel Adebayor situation has not been officially resolved. All the signs are pointing to an exit but I have to say I can’t see too much pointing going on and on about it until it does happen.
So rather refreshingly on this fine Friday, I will turn to everybody’s favourite little Russian boy-man-child Andrey Arshavin. The midfielder participated in a great interview with SkySports where he talks about – among other things – Adebayor’s situation, his favourite moment of last season, how much he hates training and how much he loves Cesc Fabregas.
The full interview is available via this link on SkySports but I managed to find it on YouTube as well and have included both parts in today’s post. Check it out below:
I know I’ve said it before but I seriously love Arshavin. The way he answers questions in interviews is honest and refreshing and he’s such an engaging personality on and off the pitch. The bit where he cracks up about training is classic and his obvious dismay at Arsene Wenger’s decision to play him on the left is hilarious as well.
Personally I’m hoping the inevitable exit of Adebayor will see the Russian moved into a second striker role in order to get the best out of his talent. He showed last season what a creative player he can be and I think that in a more attacking role he has the ability to run riot and give our attack an extra edge. He’ll be raring and ready to go when the season starts, as opposed to last season, and I really feel it could be a massive season for Arshavin.
Anyway I’m going to leave it there for today. Enjoy your Friday, enjoy your weekend and I’ll be back tomorrow or whenever the news of Adebayor’s move is made official.
