I'm glad that Philippe Senderos has said he wants to stay at AC Milan. For his sake, and for Arsenal's.
I've always felt that he would flourish in Italian football. The slower pace suits his game.
His best performances for Arsenal were in European football where the game isn't as quick as the Premiership, where at times, he looked out of his depth.
Senderos always tried his nuts off for us but unfortunately it was never enough. He is a confidence player and always played at his best when having a run of games under his belt.
I believed that he was always due a clanger at any time, even when he was on form. You could say that most of the Arsenal defence are always due a clanger too!
The problem with Senderos though, was that he couldn't shake off his mistake and his head would be down on his laces.
I think he is a great defender, on his day, and I will be sad when, not it, he leaves because as I've said, he always gave his all.
Maybe he could, and should, have become a mainstay in the Arsenal defence. Perhaps he would have under the guidance of someone like Martin Keown.
We all saw how good he was when Keown was brought back in 2006 to help the tactics at the back.
However, it looks as if he will be on his way and I'm glad it will be in a league that will suit him and with a team as big as AC Milan.
Good luck Phil!
Keep it Goonerish..........
