Now He Truly Is 'Swiss Tony'

Now He Truly Is 'Swiss Tony'

Phileppe Senderos has well and truly become 'Swiss Tony'

Tomas Rosicky, Cesc Fabegas & Kolo Toure have all had the recent privelidge of being issued shirt numbers of Arsenal legends, and today Arsene Wenger showed Senderos how valuable he is to the squad by issuing him with the legendary number 6 shirt.

The shirt has been rested over the past few seasons after Mr Arsenal, Tonay Adams, hung up his boots.

Senderos had to mature beyond his years last season after Sol Campbell went awol, he was also a rock for Switzerland in the world cup even scoring a goal with a bloodied head. Tony would have been proud of that one himself.

Well played Phil.

Senderos deserves it fair play to him. But there is no way Henry should change his number. He has made the number 14 shirt his own and should never change from it.

Congrats Phillip, i'm sure you'll do just as well as Tony did even better hopefully. I think number 10 will be Saviola jus waiting confirmation on his imminent signing...

well that is somewhat of a shock to me. 6 is a very priveleged number to take. and as a centre back senderos now looks to be the player that will take sol campbells place with this number and arsene has shown alot of faith in him.

Looks like Wenger thinks he is the real deal and the long term successor to Big Tony. I have had my doubts at times, but he is still young and will only continue to improve. I hope he goes on to make John Terry look like Igor Stepanovs.

I think that Wenger issuing these new numbers is a subtle way of saying the team has come of age. I'm amazed that number 6 has been issued, I thought it had been retired!!

it is wengers belief in his youth that inspires them to perform and what better way to show your belief.as for the kenyan kijana i think RVP will earn number 10 and henry he has rendered 14 legendary material one day someone will have to earn it.
