Vermaelen: Why I almost quit Arsenal


Thomas Vermaelen mungkin bukan pemain Arsenal lagi hari ini sekiranya dia membuat keputusan untuk beralih angin sepertimana yang dilakukan oleh Fabregas, Nasri dan Clichy pada musim perpindahan yang lalu. Pastinya ia akan menambah perit untuk Arsenal bangkit apatah lagi sememangnya Vermaelen merupakan tunjang pertahanan The Gunners.

Katanya:
“I thought about it really long and hard because I knew there were some doubts about the club. But the most important thing for me is that I feel happy here. 
“Another thing is that Ive only played one year my first. Last year I was injured, so I thought I had to give something back to the club and the fans. I felt, for me, it wasnt done here. 
“I still believe in the club and the structure of it is really good, so these are the main reasons I stayed. 
“People think if things are difficult it is always better at another club. 
“But if things are not going as you want in the beginning it doesnt mean you have to quit. 
“Thats the job, you have to fight for it and get better and better. 
“Its easy to quit and go somewhere else, but that doesnt mean somewhere else is better. 
“This is a really nice club, I feel at home here. The board, the boss, the fans … they have a lot of belief in me, so why should I leave?”
Pada perlawanan menentang Fulham di Stadium Emirates minggu lepas, Vermaelen menyebabkan gol sendiri dan akhirnya menebus kembali kesilapan tersebut dengan menyudahkan hantaran lintang Theo Walcott dengan tandukan kemas. Dan dia membuktikan mengapa Verminator bakal terus mengganas dipersada EPL!
