Another Player Who “Dreams” Of Playing For Arsenal

By on September 17, 2011

It seems to be the classic line when either a player has just joined a new club, or if he is pushing frantically for a move. It’s a favourite among the players, is lapped up eagerly by the fans and is very pleasant for the clubs confidence and ego. So as the player will be pleasing pretty much everyone, why not use the endearing story that it is a “dream come true” to represent their new club?

The former West Ham, Liverpool and Chelsea midfielder, who has joined Arsenal on loan for the season, Yossi Benayoun, has given us an insight into what goes on his head when it is upon his London based pillow at night, following in the footsteps of another new Arsenal signing in Joel Campbell.

The Israeli spoke about his hopes that he may stay at his “dream” club Arsenal beyond the end of this season, as well as wishing to win some silverware at the Emirates. Having played a part in only two games for the club since his loan, the Arsenal manager Wenger believes it is too early to consider a permanent deal, but Benayoun is eager to impress. He said:

“For me, the main thing is concentrating on having a good season and trying to take this opportunity with both hands. I’m sure, if I do well, the connection will continue together.”

“Especially when you get to a big club, you want to win trophies. I was very close with Liverpool and was also very close with West Ham. When you reach a club like Arsenal, you dream about winning trophies and I’m sure we have the quality to do it.”

“It is one of the biggest clubs in Europe. I have been lucky enough to play for a few big clubs in my career and when I got the chance to play for a big club like Arsenal, it was like a dream come true.”

He may be “sure” that Arsenal have the quality needed to win some trophies, but others are not so optimistic. A nightmarish start to the Premier League season has seen a little relief with the clubs first win of the season against Swansea, but performances will need drastic improvement to challenge the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City who have started so well.

Benayoun’s admission that it is a “dream” to play for Arsenal will make him a little more popular with the fans, but something that will see him rise higher in their estimations is if he were able to help them to a first trophy in six years. If he can do that in his first and perhaps only season at Arsenal, he will certainly be living the dream.
