  1. This is a daft and very little thought out article. Probably why there is no comments. What manager will give a 16year old that you have never seen play a contract- especially on the recommendation of some guy.

    It wasn’t as tho he played the trial and he wasn’t chosen. He refused to play a trial at all. What kind of arrogant 16 year old is that should be the logical question.

  2. Just cos he scored one good goal suddenly people missed out on him… Considering the players Arsenal have had in the meantime I don’t think they missed out on much. He’s still over arrogant and inconsistent.

      1. Ibrahimović is 31. Do you really think that he would have stayed at Arsenal for 15 years? The longest time he has stayed at one club is 3 years.

  3. Yeah and of course by now he would have already left Arsenal to go elsewhere like all it’s other big stars. Maybe he would have at least gone to another league instead of a rival like a certain someone.
