Senderos over the moon with Milan move

AC Milan new-boy Philippe Senderos has labelled his move to the Italian giants as a ‘dream come true’, after penning a twelve-month loan deal with Carlo Anceletti’s side.

The 23-year-old stopper was a surprise swoop for the Rossoneri as they looked to strengthen their back line for a Scudetto push.

After the arrival of Mikael Silvestre at the Emirates Stadium, Arsene Wenger decided to allow Senderos to spend the campaign at San Siro and the Swiss defender says he ‘couldn’t be happier’.

“I am really happy to play in a team like Milan,” Senderos told the club’s official website. “For me, this is a dream come true. Everything has happened really fast, in a week. Everything here is incredible. The people are very easy going and they have made me feel like I’m at home.

“In the past I have achieved some success. To have become European Champion with the Under-17 national team and of course, at the age of 18 to have arrived to a big club as Arsenal. In London I have learned a lot. It has been a life school and (manager Arsene) Wenger has helped me.

“Today I can say I have reached a superior level by coming to this club. I want to give 100 per cent and improve every day. This team wants to return to the Champions League and I will do everything I can to help.”

Senderos will have to wait for his Milan debut as he is currently suffering from a back injury.

Gooner Talk would like to wish Big Phil a successful spell with AC Milan, and hope to see him impressing for the Italian stars in the near future.

    A win-win-win situation for Arsenal, Milan and the player. Best of luck to the big guy; his contribution to the team will be remembered.

    Good for him and good for us. We lose him and now have Song, Silvestre and Djourou who can all fill in better than him.

    We got Porto, Fenarbache and Kiev in the Champions League. Could of been worse.

  5. Marko says:

    Liverpool got PSV, Marsailles and Atletico Madrid. Ha they're gonna get knocked out.

    Personally i wish he had stayed. I get the feeling that he's gone for good. I would definately give him a starting berth alongside either Toure,Djourou or even Gallas i suppose. Hope he comes back with lots of help from Maldini & co.
