Notwithstanding a rather surprising and incredible start to life in Arsenal’s ninety-fourth season in the elite tier of English football, Arsenal messed up in the second half of the season after leading the table for more days than any other teams. The dearth of options to ease the pressure off the shoulders of Olivier Giroud could easily be pinpointed for Arsenal’s turbulence halfway into the season. As an aftermath of the realization of this evident shortcoming, Arsenal are now linked with a wide array of players. Some of England’s trustworthy websites reported last week that Arsene Wenger had entered the fray to land the AC Milan striker in Mario Balotelli at Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal are a club who are known for their exquisite way of playing football and are easily one of the most revered club in England, if not Europe and the attitude of Mario Balotelli doesn’t seem to see eye to eye with the Arsenal anticipations.
Mario Balotelli’s mischief needs no introduction. Though Mario Balotelli sometimes demands to see the other side of him during the brawls, what sounds completely ludicrous is that most of the aforementioned names are his team-mates. No professional footballer would have such a terrible behavioral record against his peers. At least, no Gunner would ever have an abominable record that takes after the Italian’s record.
Well-wishers and football pundits have asserted that the Italian enigma will be fine-tuned by Arsene Wenger in terms of aptitude and attitude if he cuts through a deal to invigorate Arsenal’s strikeforce. Mario Balotelli is, beyond a doubt, one of the football’s most brilliant striking talents (He had scored 14 Serie A goals last season) and an eminent club like Arsenal are in the pursuit for a brilliant striking talent but then, still it will be a gamble for Arsenal. Such is the contrast between Mario Balotelli and Arsenal. The ends can’t meet lest the future of Arsenal in terms of fair play is in deep trouble. Arsenal can instead execute the clause to bring Carlos Vela back to Emirates Stadium as the South American lad must already be aware of life at Arsenal despite his infamous stint.
