The Beast: Release Me
Julio 'the beast` Baptista says that he is ready to have a run in the first team after his recent injury troubles. Baptista has missed several weeks with an injury sustained in a behind closed doors friendly with Charlton.
Baptista, currently on a season-long loan from Real Madrid has already said that he wants to make the transfer permanent at the end of the season.
Speaking after he grabbed his first goal for Arsenal in a 3-1 victory over Hamburg in the Champions League Baptista said: 'I would like to have more time and to be a part of the team. But I can only do this by making use of the opportunities the manager gives me.
'I was satisfied with the goal, I am fit and I hope to keep on helping the team in the upcoming games.
'I know I must give good performances for the manager.
'With Arsene Wenger, I am learning nobody is assured of their position in the starting 11 and we all have to prove ourselves.'
I'm sure all Gooners want to see him 'released' to do a job on Bolton this coming weekend!
