Arsenal’s boss Arsene Wenger has revealed shocking information about the star signing which he promised to his fanbase. Arsène Wenger has revealed he found out that a deal for Mesut Ozil was close shortly before the north London derby kicked off. Wenger claimed that he felt a bit afraid as he promised a big signing but at the end all didn’t go so well as expected.
Although Wenger said that ‘hard work’ was the reason this deal went through and he presented Arsenal fans with a gift he promised.
He said, “To say it was all under control is a big exaggerated because not a lot was under control, but I told you two or three days before… I looked a bit lonely when I said I was optimistic but in the end it happened.”
He added, “I thought we had a chance to do it, a small one, but we worked very hard on it until the end. It was very complicated in the end because the timing was short, but on Sunday when I came to the Tottenham game, just at 2 o’clock I thought we will manage to do it. Before the game I knew we were 90 per cent there.”
