Tottenham’s young winger Adel Taarabt has admitted his regret at not joining bitter rivals Arsenal when he had the chance. Silly boy.
Taarabt, currently on loan at QPR, told The London Evening Standard;
“I was going to go to Arsenal and Comolli was there with Arsene Wenger, but [Comolli] went to Tottenham so I went there.
That was a big mistake for me. My friends in England – like Armand Traore and Abou Diaby at Arsenal – told me Tottenham were not the right fit for me.
The big mistake was to sign for Tottenham and not go to Arsenal when I first came over.”
The 20-year-old Moroccan continued his charm-offensive by going on to criticise English football in general;
“England is not for me, I think La Liga is the best league for me.
I don’t like how they play in England, I like to play football. I look at teams like Bolton, Stoke or Wolves and say: ‘There is just no point for me’. I hate that style of football.”
Spurs fans must be counting the days until this delightful young chap returns to their fold.
