Saying that he’s already laughing at the mere thought of their anger, Arsene Wenger today revealed that he’s kinda looking forward to seeing how Arsenal fans react when they realise Granit Xhaka is the only signing he’s making this summer.
Speaking after the north London club announced the transfer of the Swiss international from Bundesliga side Borussia Mönchengladbach, the Frenchman admitted that he’s excited to watch the club’s fans “lose their shit” when it dawns on them that he’s not signing anyone else.
“Aw man, it’s gonna be absolutely hilarious. I just had a little glance over Twitter and they’re losing their minds with excitement. They are gonna be so pissed when no-one else comes in,” said the 66-year-old, adding that he had specifically pushed the deal through early in an attempt to build false hope among supporters.
“This deal has been secured so early that you just know they’re already excitedly hypothesising about what Benzema and Gotze could bring to the team. I know I shouldn’t enjoy winding them up so much but I just can’t help it.”
At press time, Wenger was considering anonymously leaking transfer news to the media in a bid to increase expectation once more.
