Arsenal have confirmed the release of a number of players from the club.
Nicklas Bendtner leaves after joining in 2004 and scoring 47 goals for the club. His most profilic season was 2008-9 when he netted 15 times, but after falling out of favour he had loan spells at Sunderland and Juventus before his final campaign at the club when he scored two league goals.
Park arrived from Monaco and nobody had a goddam clue why. He went to Celta Vigo on loan, scoring three times, and this season joined Watford but barely played because, basically, he’s terrible. If somebody told you he was a money laundering scam it would all make sense.
The two young players have had their moments. Aneke has done very well at Crewe so good luck to him wherever he ends up, while centre-half Boateng is set for a summer Inter-railing around Europe after his father George paid for the ticket.
We wish them all luck in the future. Some of them are really going to need it.
