Perry Groves Swings into Action on the Arsenal Crisis
We caught up with Arsenal legend and friend of Footy Boots, Perry Groves this week to get his take on the crisis at Arsenal following the departure of Thierry Henry. What does the fans favourite think of Thierry Henry going? Perry said “Thierry Henry’s transfer was good business, if Wenger wanted to keep him, he could have made him stay, but Wenger thinks the time is right to release him. A good bit of business.”
And Wenger himself? “Arsenal should chain Wenger to the Emirates.”
All talk has been Wenger following Henry out, but Perry believes the great man is staying, for a long time. “Wenger will sign an extension to his contract by Christmas,” Perry assured us.
The only subject left for the explosive midfielder to tackle was the David Dein departure – the event that has proved to be the catalyst to the recent events. “Dein will be back at Arsenal,” said Perry. “By keeping quiet and not getting into the media circus around the Arsenal fiasco, Dein has kept his cards close to his chest. Kroenke will be taking over or more strongly involved and Dein will be at the helm,” predicted Perry. As always Perry pitches into the Arsenal debate with a straight forward insider’s view, that the fans come to expect from the outspoken firebrand.
