Arsene Wenger rules out Arsenal move for Chelsea captain John Terry

first_imgArsene Wenger believes John Terry remains a great player but has ruled out making a shock move for the Chelsea captain. Wenger spoke warmly about the former England captain but said he would not follow up the signing of goalkeeper Petr Cech from Chelsea by going after Terry. The Chelsea skipper has also said that he would not consider joining another English club, with the United States or China more likely destinations. Asked if he had any interest in signing Terry, Wenger said: “No, b ecause he is at the end of his career and he has spent his career at Chelsea. If he wants to play longer, I am sure he will play for Chelsea. “Loyalty works two ways. I always consider that I’m paid for my commitment to the club and I’m well paid so once it is over the club owes me nothing and I have to get on with my life and find another way. “I do not expect a reward because it is part of my contract.” Wenger believes the player has shown more than enough in his time with Chelsea to suggest he has a bright future on and off the field. “He was not only a great player, he certainly still is, but he was also a great coach on the pitch,” he added. “I saw him here once at London Colney playing with the under-21s and the way he coached the team as a player was absolutely marvellous. Press Association “He was a real leader and he had a great career as well, let’s not forget that. That’s never a coincidence. The guys who last such a long time have something special. “He was the symbol of cohesion inside Chelsea’s club because him, (Frank) Lampard, (Didier) Drogba and Cech were the players who carried the club’s values for long periods. When you lose players like that you’re always in danger. “I see a coaching career in his future, certainly. He will remain in football, I’m sure.” While Terry’s surprise announcement was not a plea to be snapped up in the closing hours of the transfer window, it has been one of the biggest stories in what has been a quiet January in terms of signings. The Gunners’ signing of midfielder Mohamed Elneny from Basle has proved to be one of the most eye-catching transfers of a quiet month. Most of the deals have been concluded by those teams looking to secure their top-flight status, with Newcastle, Norwich and Bournemouth among the biggest spenders. Wenger said at the start of January that he was expecting plenty of money to be spent but there has been a lack of major deals. Speaking at his press conference ahead of Tuesday’s match at home to Southampton, the Frenchman said: “The whole period was much quieter than I expected. I thought there would be much more activity but finally it has been quite and the fact we are all here means it is still quiet.” While not completely ruling out any further additions to his ranks, Wenger’s tongue-in-cheek response to making a late deal suggests he knows no incomings are likely. “100 per cent is difficult to say, but 99 per cent sure, yes,” he said of any deadline day recruitment. “A miracle can always happen, someone can knock on your door and if (Lionel) Messi knocks on my door at 10 to six tonight, I will not say ‘please go back to Barcelona!'” There could yet be a couple of temporary departures as Wenger is hopeful of loaning out both Serge Gnabry and Mathieu Debuchy before the window closes on Monday evening. The 36-year-old revealed on Sunday that he expects to leave the Blues in the summer having been told he will not be offered a new contract at the club. Terry has been at Stamford Bridge since the age of 14 and has won no fewer than 16 major honours with Chelsea. The west London club issued their own statement on Sunday night in which they said a contract extension could yet be offered. last_img read more

Kane scores twice as Tottenham hit form to thrash Stoke

first_img(REUTERS)-Tottenham Hotspur emerged from their recent slump to demolish Stoke City 5-1 at Wembley in the Premier League on Saturday and continue a run of handsome victories over Mark Hughes’s side.One win in five games had dropped Tottenham out of the title race, and out of the top four, but once Ryan Shawcross’s first-half own goal had given them the lead they proved unstoppable.Tottenham have scored 17 goals and conceded one in their last four meetings with Stoke and are the first English top-flight side to win four consecutive matches against the same club by a four-goal margin.Mauricio Pochettino’s team had found goals hard to come by at their temporary Wembley home in this campaign, especially against teams they brushed aside with ease last season, but Stoke again proved compliant opposition.Four goals arrived in a flurry after halftime with the impressive Son Heung-min slotting in after 53 minutes and Harry Kane, guilty of missing an earlier sitter, making it 3-0 with a thumping header.Kane side-footed his second in the 65th minute to take his tally to 18 in all competitions this season before Christian Eriksen weighed in with Tottenham’s fifth, following a Son pass.Tottenham Hotspur emerged from their recent slump to demolish Stoke City 5-1 at Wembley in the Premier League on Saturday and continue a run of handsome victories over Mark Hughes’s side.One win in five games had dropped Tottenham out of the title race, and out of the top four, but once Ryan Shawcross’s first-half own goal had given them the lead they proved unstoppable.Tottenham have scored 17 goals and conceded one in their last four meetings with Stoke and are the first English top-flight side to win four consecutive matches against the same club by a four-goal margin.Mauricio Pochettino’s team had found goals hard to come by at their temporary Wembley home in this campaign, especially against teams they brushed aside with ease last season, but Stoke again proved compliant opposition.Four goals arrived in a flurry after halftime with the impressive Son Heung-min slotting in after 53 minutes and Harry Kane, guilty of missing an earlier sitter, making it 3-0 with a thumping header.Kane side-footed his second in the 65th minute to take his tally to 18 in all competitions this season before Christian Eriksen weighed in with Tottenham’s fifth, following a Son pass.Kane has now scored 33 Premier League goals in the calendar year with four games left, three short of the record set by Alan Shearer in 1995.Shawcross managed to score at the right end to give Stoke a consolation goal but it could not disguise a feeble effort.“The most important thing today was the victory, that we get what we deserved,” Pochettino said.“The performance was very good, a very great performance from the team, and it is not easy to score five. But I am not surprised by the performance, it was like against Watford and West Bromwich. Always you need a bit of luck to open up games.”Tottenham, who will return to a brand new stadium next to their old White Hart Lane ground next season, are still 15 points adrift of leaders Manchester City who play on Sunday.While a title challenge looks beyond them, Pochettino said a return to the free-scoring football of last season can help them in their bid for a top-four finish.“That is how we need to play from now. Consistency between now and the end of the season is so important if we want to finish in the top four. The team showed their true quality.”last_img read more
