Baptista Gets Silva Service

Baptista Gets Silva Service

Brazillian power house, Julio Baptista will have a helping hand to settle in from fellow countryman Gilberto Silva.

Baptista is currently learning how to speak English, but until the time arrives where he is fluent in the Queens' then Arsenal favorite Gilberto will help him to get to grips with life at Arsenal.

Gilberto himself knows how hard it can be to settle into a side in a foreign country, but also realises the value of a friend who speaks the same language.

'It was very important for us to bring him over, he will contribute a lot and I wish him a lot of success. He is another Brazilian to speak Portuguese with me, so it is good.' said Bert.

It seems as though the Arsenal vice captain wants to give something back after he was helped to settle in England by former Arsenal midfielder Edu.

'I will do what I can to help him, the same as Edu did with me when I came over,' he said.

'He did the same job with me as I will try to do with him to help him settle quickly. I am here to help him.

'I have spoken to him about how fantastic the club is and I told him I think he will enjoy everything.'

I'm afraid to shatter your dreams Tugboat but Denilson is a defensive midfielder. However Fran Merida will excede anything Ronaldinho can do, he's skillful AND scores goals. The carling cup should be interesting this year.
