"It was the winter holiday and I was back in Togo having a kickabout with friends when my phone rang.One of the boys answered it and said, 'Manu, it's Arsene for you'. 'Arsene who?' I said. 'Arsene Wenger', he said. 'Get out of it', I said, and grabbed the phone off him. But then I heard the voice. 'Allo'. F*****g hell. It is Arsene Wenger!"

Rijkaard: It Will Be Easier For Arsenal

36 hours away!

Marcel Desailly reckons Henry will stay at Highb....wait, Emirates Stadium. Marcel believes that he has a good life in London, a life that he wont want to let go off. He said that henry will end his career with Arsenal like Maldini at AC Milan, he told BBC Sport: "He will stay to lead Arsenal into the new stadium and finish his career at Arsenal like (Franco) Baresi and Paolo Maldini finished their careers at AC Milan. He will be the next legend of Arsenal like Tony Adams,".

Thierry told reporters that his passion for the game comes from his inner anger....whatever that means. He also talked about hom eventhough Ronaldinho smiles all the time, he has the inner anger too. All I can say is, with teeth like that, you cant go through life without having anger! Henry siad: "When I see those two[Rooney and Ronaldinho] I see a player from the streets. Everyone talks about Ronaldinho smiling all the time but inside there are no smiles."

Frank Rijkaard believes that he has the tougher job compared to Wenger going into the final because[he believes] Arsenal will be sit back and play counter-attacking football against his Barca side. He said: "It will be easier for Arsenal than for us. They will wait to hit us on the counter attack, and will look for their options this way." I still think Arsenal will not go into the final playing counter-attacking football simply because thats not how Arsenal play. Like against Real Madrid and Juventus, I think Arsenal will try to score an early goal, and if it comes, they will try to slow down the tempo in the second half and then... Arsenal will sit back!
