"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!"

Thierry Could Have Been The World's Most Expensive

Arsenal had rejected 2 £50m bids from 2 Spanish clubs[Real and Barca] for Thierry Henry earlier this season. The deal would have made Henry The World's Most Expensive Player ahead of Zinedine Zidane who joined Real Madrid for £47. David Dein told the Sunday Express: "We turned down two world record deals from Spanish clubs. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to work out who they were,". He then added, "Our message was clear - he wasn't for sale. I'd like to think he heard that."

Barcelona's hero Juliano Beletti who scored the winning goal in Paris said that Thierry Henry's time at top-level football is over. He said:
"Henry is Arsenal's best player but his time at the top level of the game is over. He aded, "He might just make it into the world's top 10 at the moment but that's not for certain. He ended, "He needed to leave London to become one of the top strikers but if he doesn't leave Arsenal, he never will." He also went on to talk about how Barca took advantage of Arsenal's weak link which was Ashley Cole. He also said that Arsenal are a 'tired' team and that there are problems among the players. How does he know all this? Does he play for Arsenal? He doesnt know 1 thing more about Arsenal than we know.
