Wenger confirms full squad for Asian tour

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal’s upcoming Asian tour will feature his ‘best possible squad’. Although very early in the pre-season, and at a stage when fitness is the primary concern, the Arsenal manager is also keen to ensure the club reaps the full benefits from the trip to the China and Malaysia.

Wenger has long been opposed to what were perceived as tiring long distance trips, prefering instead to focus on the Austrian training camp. However, financial necessities and a chance to make contact with Arsenal’s many fans in the region have played a part.

Speaking to Arsenal.com, Wenger said, “For a long time I resisted but more and more the Premier League becomes a world league. So it’s important that we develop our fan base as well, and develop the number of fans we have in Asia through the quality of our games”.

And with regard to the players he’ll have available he said, “I will take the best possible squad. We travel after the first week’s training, everybody will be back, so the whole squad will travel”.

It is thought a number of young players will also travel to give them experience with the first team as well as allowing the manager a larger group to pick from when the games against the Malaysia XI and Chinese Super League side Hangzhou Greentown take place.

A large range of bookmakers are offering incredibly long odds than Arsenal will have made a signing by then.

Now, was that necessary? haha!

William

I assume this is like the Arsenal attendances then? Say everyone’s going when really we know a few won’t be.

Sniff

Heh.

This pre-season is getting a bit strange now.

Savage is a Dave

How exciting. Thanks Arsene. You’re the best.

Kh

Strongest possible squad? Denilson, Diaby, Almunia, Sqaullici, Eboue… our opposition must be shaking in their boots. HA!

argonaut

Perhaps the plan is to leave them there.

Gordon

Awesome!

Tau

Thats a gd 1.likd y cment

Ejiro Esiri

ha! D English man and his wild sarcasm

Kh

I don’t get it. First he’s linked with Barcelona midway through the season. And now AC Milan wanna sign him. No not Cesc or Nasri you cunts but Denilson! And I’m not even kidding about it!

Gooner In Red

KH – What next….Bendter in a bidding war between Man Utd & Barcelona and being sold for 100 million…..

Kh

That’s how much NB thinks his left foot is worth. Not a bad player but the ego of Frenchman… *coughs* Wenger! *coughs*

Shamps

@ Gooner In Red
Heck, for that price can we throw in a free Eboue?

EricUSA

At least Eboue puts forth an effort albeit he is shiiite

Mike

It has been long time with just same news same toppic everyday and we are really sick hearing sameone every single hour.if Samir nasri wanted to leave his funs behide then let him go and get someone like honda as well as modric so please wenger we really need more change this time

Gordon

Late as usual by decades to consider the Asian market. You didn’t want to bring the Invincibles 9 years ago and that was just plain stupidity. Now you want to bring a team nearly full of duds who should be playing for Championship to savage and milk whatever’s left of a dying prized cow once. Pathetic and extremely sad. No one is drooling over Arsenal we can all agree to that. Next season will be the real start of the decline when we are not in the CL group stages and will not qualify for CL in the season after.… Read more »

ekeeke

now that was one of the best comment ever!

Lhaykon

Arsene wenger should sell fabregas bcos his mind is no longer with arsenal, he should try and keep nasri nd sign samba, Eto’o, ricky nd cahill. Dnt sell clichy

Peter

I,d keep eboue because he boosts the team moral. And to be honest he is decent when he gets a run of games although I,d obviously stick with sagna. Also he is the most versatile player on our squad.

ME

Keep! Keep! Sell! sell! Buy! buy! buy! what the fuck is going on, am feeling dizzy. pls leave arsenal alone

Grahlinho

Keep nasri, and fab unless barca throws 45+ mill on the table, in any case we would get more reinforcements, get gervinho, eto and a defender if clichy goes, i think vermalen djourou kosielny is ok trio for rotatiing on CB, se who works out best, or get a new Cb and let verm be backup in the def midfield role!
