Senderos: “I have nothing to be ashamed”
Philip Senderos has joined up with his Swiss coleagues in preparation for the on coming Euro 2008.
In assessing his season at Arsenal he said today in the Swiss press:
“I have played some thirty matches. I played in some great games in the Champions League. I have gained experience. I have nothing to be ashamed of my record"
He went on to quash all speculation that he was a nervous wreck after that fateful match at Anfield in the Champions League:
"This is untrue. I just assumed my mistake on the first goal for Liverpool. Then I was the victim of the choices made by the coach."
He had to wait until May 4, four games later, to make a reappearance after that. He played for four minutes against Everton and then in the final game of the season against Sunderland.
This has encouraged him and has recently declared that he has the backing of Arsene Wenger.
"I am under contract with Arsenal until 2010. There is no reason that I do not honour that" he said.
But Wenger has already said that he is on the lookout for another central defender.
Also today’s news, if it is to be believed, is that Juventus may be making a move for Philip.
Under these circumstances I am not sure if Wenger will honour his side of the contract!
