Arsenal Ace: Rooney Didn’t Cause Transfer Scramble

By on September 3, 2011

Arsenal’s Per Mertesacker insists he is isn’t a kneejerk reaction to their 8-2 trouncing by Manchester United.

The German defender was brought in on the last day of the transfer deadline with some suggesting the 6ft 6in defender was a panic buy. However the monster defender doesn’t believe Wayne Rooney’s hatrick was the cause of his purchase.

“I don’t think my transfer was Rooney’s fault,” said Mertesacker.

“I don’t think that was the reason. I want to believe they were monitoring me for quite some time. For me, a childhood dream has come true.

“There is such incredible potential and we will get out of the position the team is currently in.”

“Arsenal have this ability to play good football and to have Arsene Wenger on top of that as coach is unbelievable,” Mertesacker said.

“I wanted this for so long. It is a challenging task which I will tackle because I will also develop further as a player.”
