Arsene Wenger believes that we should give new striker signing Ju Young Park a bit more time before he starts to set the Premier League alight. Wenger says that just like Thierry Henry when he joined Arsenal, it took him a bit of time to settle down before he starts playing well and the same goes for Park.

“Some players like Pires and Henry took four, five, six months and they became exceptional players,” he told Arsenal Player. “Park arrived two months ago so that’s normal.

“Some people judged our players very quickly in a negative way and slowly they changed their mind through their performances. I prefer it that way round than the other. Some players make you jump off your seat in the early stages and then disappoint you after. These players will win over all the sceptical people and Park is one of them.

“I have been impressed by his intelligence and his attitude. He is well-appreciated and rated by his team-mates and by the staff as well – we think he is a quality player.

“It is hard in the Premier League but Park is a player with quality and intelligence. On the longer term that will always come out and I am confident he will do that in the Premier League as well.

“What you need when you want to be successful at a club is three strikers, three central strikers. We have them and we are very happy with that.”

    a bit of an over-reaction to what is a fair if somewhat sensationalistic title…thats the only comparison (early form)from what ive seen..henry was always potentially a world-class player..his athleticism and speed and power set him apart.Whats really concerning is the comment that we have 3 strikers!…apart from RVP….who else is there?……thats if you believe a striker is a player that scores goals regularly of course.Wenger id deluded enough to believe we have 3 genuine strikers!!!!
