Denilson On Life In England

Denilson On Life In England

Deadline day signing, Denilson, has been speaking about his last ditch transfer to the mighty Gunners and how he hopes to progress into the first team via the Carling Cup.

Denilson is captain of the Under 19's Brazilian team yet claims the tackles back home were nothing compared the the treatment dished out in our reserve league.

'It has been a dream for me since I was young to play in Europe, but I never imagined I could sign for a club like Arsenal so early in my career,' Arsenal.com

'I am going to try to my maximum and I want my football to mature here.

'I really think I can become a champion with Arsenal and make it into one of the best players in the world.

'The manager has said I have real quality, with a good touch and good technique. He says that now I just have to adapt so I can start to play in the first team.'

'In Brazil, you would not really get kicks like I did for the reserves - if a player had done that to me at home, then he probably would have got a red card,' he observed.

'But this is English football, the players are very strong and the tackles are very strong. You just have to take one or two touches so you do not get tackled in the same way.

'I have been working hard to play in the Carling Cup and am hoping that with my persistence, I could get a chance.'

The young midfielder also says he's been made to feel as home by Arsenal's two other resident Brazilians.

'It is good for me that Gilberto and Julio Baptista are here,' he said.

'They talk to me about life at Arsenal, ask me if I am happy and understand things. Arsenal have treated me very, very well and have made me feel part of the family.'

So it appears Mr Wenger has signed another promising youngster with the right attitude.

I saw him play in the World youth champ. in 2005 and he looks a very big talent...he needs to keep his feet on the ground as he is still only 18.If he does this and rremains patient, he can become whatever he wants for himself as he has what it takes to succeed at the very top level.
