Topic: What do you think of Denilson's comments??
"A footballer's career is over very quickly so it is time for me to move on. This has been the worst season of my life," Denilson said in The Sun. "I made up my mind eight months ago. But I haven't said anything because I did not want to disrupt the team during the season.
"I've been to see Arsene Wenger and told him how I felt and he agreed to let me go. I know some people will think I'm crazy. They are right. It is a great club, with a great organisation, a great manager and so many talented players. I need a fresh challenge and although I'm taking a big gamble, I'm ready to take that risk.
"I am a footballer and I want to play every week because I want the chance to play for Brazil. Look at Lucas [Leiva] at Liverpool. He's been playing regularly and he's in the Brazil team. That's where I want to be.
"I would love to be able to do that at Arsenal but based on how things have gone this season, I think it's time for a change. So I am flying home to Brazil on Sunday and I'm hoping I can make a fresh start in Spain or maybe Italy."
What do you think of this? Good for Arsenal to get rid of Denilson?
Why does an average player such as Denilson want to leave Arsenal?
Have your say!!
