“In my opinion, Arsenal is just an Academy. I watch their games, they’re a pleasure to watch, but will they win a title? That’s what people remember. In 10 years, nobody will remember them. Arsenal is a great Club, they didn’t win a trophy for 5 years, it’s a crisis in my opinion. People always think about the ‘Arsenal way of playing’, but at the end, there’s nothing. We can lose against them [on Monday], but at the end what will happen? Nothing. No trophy, no nothing.”
The divine words of Patrice Evra, a man who is clearly ignorant of Manchester United and Arsenal’s contrasting financial situations and the current league table. But really, what can you expect from a man who called our team a “bunch of babies” in 2007 before promptly losing to them 2-1 at The Emirates a month later?
“In 10 years, nobody will remember them”? What a ridiculous statement. A club with 125 years history, 13 league titles and the most secure environment to improve their trophy count over the next decade will be forgotten? For goodness sakes, even Nani’s not that stupid.
Seriously Arsene, put this on the dressing room wall before Monday.
