As we look forward to a summer of ins and outs, it appears as though the first mover and shaker is going to be Brazilian midfielder, Denilson.
Denilson has endured a topsy turvey career at Arsenal, sometimes threatening to become a top notch player, but the majority of the time, simply a decent squad player, other times … well …. Let`s not dwell on that.
Anyway, in a lengthy interview with The Sun (really Denilson? Couldn`t you find anyone better to talk to?) Denny says that his intention was to join Arsenal to win trophies and get into the Brazil team, and that because neither has happened, he`ll be offskis, and Arsene Wenger has ok`ed the move too.
'A footballer's career is over very quickly so it is time for me to move on. This has been the worst season of my life,' Denilson said in The Sun. 'I made up my mind eight months ago. But I haven't said anything because I did not want to disrupt the team during the season.
'I've been to see Arsene Wenger and told him how I felt and he agreed to let me go. I know some people will think I'm crazy. They are right. It is a great club, with a great organisation, a great manager and so many talented players. I need a fresh challenge and although I'm taking a big gamble, I'm ready to take that risk.
'I am a footballer and I want to play every week because I want the chance to play for Brazil. Look at Lucas at Liverpool. He's been playing regularly and he's in the Brazil team. That's where I want to be.
'I would love to be able to do that at Arsenal but based on how things have gone this season, I think it's time for a change. So I am flying home to Brazil on Sunday and I'm hoping I can make a fresh start in Spain or maybe Italy.'
Denilson has always been a good professional, never whinged, doesn`t really talk to the press or stumble out of the spearmint rhino pissed out of his face with Danielle Lloyd draped over his arm, he has tried his best, but the honest truth is he`s isn`t good enough, and if we want to make strides next season then players like Denilson will have to be moved on to create room for shiny new players.
Good luck to him, I hope he finds the right team, and I`ll miss the wobbly head goal celebration.
