12.59 – It’s another sad day for Arsenal fans. Alberto Mendez has left the building….
Amazingly, he’d been with Arsenal for 5 years, having been signed not long after Arsene Wenger took over. The story goes he’d been playing for a 2nd or 3rd division German team when a friend of AW told him to have a look. Arsene saw enough in him to take him to Arsenal, but he never really looked like making the grade.
He did score a rocket of a free kick in a meaningless Champions League game a couple of seasons ago, but has spent most of his time out on loan. Interestingly enough, he has his own website, and now that he’s out of contract, he might have the time to do it up a bit.
Hasta Luego Alberto.
David Seaman is being offered a new deal by Arsenal. Not happy news if you’re Richard Wright I suppose, but with the possibility of losing Adams and Keown, it makes sense to keep hold of Seaman’s experience.
