Denilson reveals his hardship during his childhood

Denilson is one of the those players that was highly praised during his youth and considered to be one of the most promising talents in the world of football but just couldn’t live up to the hype and expectations.

Arsene Wenger signed Denilson back when the Brazilian player was only 18 years old for a transfer fee of £3.4 million and he spent 5 seasons performing in the Premier League club. Unfortunately for Denilson, he could never really stand out and injuries were another factor that limited his playing time in the pitch.


In the 5 seasons that he spent as an Arsenal player, Denilson failed to snatch a significant piece of silverware and this shows how much the Premier League club struggled to win any competition in this period of time. However, despite not going through the best of times with Arsenal, Denilson stated that joining a top club such as Arsenal is a dream come true.

The 28 year old player stated that he is doing what his father couldn’t do and it’s to play football every day and utilize it as a consistent source of income, this is something that he is extremely proud to do.

“My father, Jose, was a professional footballer for Botafogo. Like me, he was a midfielder. But he had to give it up at 25 to look after my mother, my brothers and me.’’

Denilson helps Al Wahda win their first trophy in four years

Brazilian player, Denilson has helped Al Wahda won the Arabian Cup. This is the first trophy that the club has won in the past four years.

The match started well for Al Wahda with the Brazilian opening the scoring only 16 seconds after the start. This was the conclusion of a fantastic move with Jorge Valdivia passing the ball to Mohammed Al Akbari. The latter found Denilson with a precise pass, and the Brazilian could not miss. The Al Maktoum Stadium erupted with Al Wahda fans pleased with the goal.

Despite playing the second half with 10-men, Al Wahda will hold on and win the game to help them get their first trophy after 4 years.

The Al Wahda manager, Javier Aguirre did not wish to comment on the sending off and stated that the game became more challenging when playing with 10 men. He congratulated his players that remain focused and disciplined to hold on in order to get the win. He explained that his next objective now will be to finish third in the league so as to get a place in the Asian Champions League.

Arsene Wenger: ‘’Arsenal can win the Premier League’’

Arsenal is a club that for the past few years has always managed to seal a top 5 spot in the Premier League but they have been struggling trying to actually claim the first place. The last time that the team of Arsene Wenger managed to win the league was during the 2003-04 season where they did not lose a single match but this was over 10 years ago.

That was a pretty long time ago and ever since that historic season, Arsenal has been faltering in their journey of becoming the champions of England but Arsene Wenger believes that this might just be the season where their Premier League title drought reaches it’s end.

“I believe that we are mature enough and that we have the requested quality to fight and compete. The most important thing is to feel, at the end of the season, that we have given absolutely everything to be successful.After that, if somebody has been better than us, we will accept it, but we want to fight to show that we have a chance. I will remind you that only one team won the league without losing a game. That is Arsenal Football Club. It is not the date New Year’s Day that is decided you win the league’’ Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger said.

If there is something that has always troubled Arsene Wenger is the vast amount of injuries that his players sustain consistently throughout an entire season. This is one of the major issues that hinders Arsenal’s chances of making a genuine charge for the top spot of the Premier League and this season has been no different as Wenger has had a few of his key players unable to play in important games.

Alexis Sanchez, Jack Wilshere, MikelArteta, Francis Coquelin, Danny Welbeck, SantiCazorla, and Tomas Rosicky are the players who have been missing out from games due to injuries but in the absence of these performers, there have been other players who have managed to step it up and push Arsenal forward. This is the case of MesutOzil and Olivier Giroud who have been at the forefront in the attacking department of Arsenal. The Frenchman is the top goal-scorer of the club and Ozil is the main playmaker. PetrCech is also doing an amazing job in between the posts and a few other players have also been able to show their worth.

Al Wahda with a game against Dibba Al Fujairah

The Arabian Gulf league starts for Al Wahda with a game against Dibba Al Fujairah but it looks like one of their most recent acquisitions will not be able to take part due to late arrival.

Jorge Valdivia is one of the summer recruits for the middle-east outfit. However, he will be coming to the club and completing the formalities only a day after the opening game of the campaign. Despite this setback,Al Wahda are confident of getting three points from the game. The Chilean playmaker will be seen as an integral link in theAl Wahda team.

At 31 years of age, he still has a lot of time left in the game. His situation is similar to that of Denilson – the former Arsenal midfielder who has also joined the club in the summer. Previously,Valdivia has represented the likes of Palmeiras. He is not a stranger to Arabian football after having previously had a stint with Al Ain for two years between 2008 and 2010. Denilson, though, is the newcomer to Arabian football. After having spent the majority of his professional career at Arsenal, he has spent the last couple of seasons at São Paulo. Many were left surprised at his decision to leave the Brazilian team once again.

Dunga, has admitted that Neymar’s wonderful play helped his team

The Brazil boss, Dunga, has admitted that Neymar’s wonderful play helped his team get the better of Peru yesterday in the all important Copa America game, but, he is not of the view that the Selecao depend a lot on their skipper.

Brazil beat Peru by 2-1 in their first match in Copa America played at Estadio Municipal German Becker, Temuco.

It was a mighty close game in which Brazil was trailing 0-1 at one point of time.

But, not only did Neymar come up with the equalizer to nullify that early Peru goal, he assisted his teammate Douglas Costa in the stoppage time to ensure his team got the second goal and bagged the three points.

The forward was awarded the player of the game for being so impressive and Dunga did not hold back in praising his main man in the post match media talks.

In the words of Dunga, “Neymar’s clearly the best that we have got at the moment and he is in the form of his life. Wherever he is playing, he is bringing success to his team.”

Aaron Ramsey scored the only goal of Arsenal’s match against Burnley

Aaron Ramsey scored the only goal of Arsenal’s match against Burnley and this victory represented much more than just 3 points as this was the 8th successive triumph of Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger and his players are going through a superb form as the team is positioned in the top 3 spots of the Premier League. Not too long ago it was Manchester City the team that was located in 2nd place but the team of Manuel Pellegrini fell down a few spots after losing against Manchester United.

This allowed Arsenal to leap into the higher positions of the top tier English League.

Even though Arsene Wenger is well aware of the impressive string of performances that Arsenal has been displaying, the French manager does not want to get caught up in the title race and he just wants to focus on continuing the season one match at a time.

Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger said: “I have enough experience to know that I have to live with reality and reality is points and the next game. The dreams are for everybody we all have dreams at night, but when I wake up in the morning I have to come here and make sure we give everything to win the next game. Chelsea have a difficult schedule, we have a difficult schedule, but what we can only do is master our own schedule.”

São Paulo managed to have Second Draw

São Paulo managed a second draw in the last five matches of the Paulista A1 table after only managing a 0-0 draw with Rio Claro. The team was hoping to build on the winning run of two matches, in which they scored 10 goals.

This helped the club moved to the top of the league table with 16 points from six matches. However, they could only add a point from the next match as result of this draw. Manager Muricy Ramalho was not a happy man after the match and he blamed a lot of things for this poor result.

Ramalho also seemed visibly upset during the postmatch press conference. He replied in one word answers for most questions. He blamed the excessive heat for his players not performing well. The club will be hoping to return to winning ways from the next league match. It will be a difficult one, though, since it is against Corinthians. Corinthians have similar statistic to that of São Paulo having played a game less.

Breno dumped from all Clubs

Breno was once regarded as a player who could achieve a lot, but the Brazilian has been troubled with a poor character in the last five years. He recently spent two years in the prison after being found guilty of setting his rental residence on fire.

The former Bayern Munich defender is now without a club and he has returned to his hometown in order to look at potential avenues of a return to football. São Paulo have taken a gamble on him and have offered him a new contract. The 25-year-old left the Brazilian league back in 2008 when he was only a teenager.

Denilson Is Miffed With Chile

Denilson is supposed to steal more balls in the Championship of Brazil. As far as the defense of Sao Paulo is concerned he is the guardian of defense. He believes that the red card was purely not justified in his entire career. He has tasted anger accordingly.

From all quarters self criticism is flowing on as he was kicked out but his rating was intact. He has so far got rid of the fouls and his companions praise him for it. In the beginning he was not shown much respect but it is astonishing that after that he started to be looked upon as being honoured. After the unruly incident he knows what he has to do and what he has to discard from his nature.

He knows where his commitment lies and hence goes to the ground before the practice even starts as opposed to his early routine when he used to arrive late by 10 minutes. Now he realizes the importance of time when he failed to do what he wanted to and life has given him second chance to prove himself. At times he even goes one hour before to prepare himself for the training. The strengthening of muscles by him is what he does religiously and he does not miss out on any opportunity. The phase is not correct but he is trying to dig deep and take out all the positives that he can from the situation.

He is an opportunist and is trying harder to make every day of his count effectively. His second son will soon come to life. He has a happy family with his wife and one son and now soon his second so is going to arrive which will double his happiness in no time. The moment is crucial for him.
