Arsenal-OL : Sylvinho looks ahead to Gunners reunion
Return to Arsenal
"I had the chance to see the new Arsenal stadium many years ago. It was with Manchester City, but I stayed on the bench, I didn't play. But when I talk about Arsenal, it's always something special for me. It's a kind of homecoming. It's a good feeling."
"Arsene Wenger is a high class coach. He was like that for 22 years at Arsenal. That kind of thing doesn't exist anymore, it's too difficult. We can say that he's of a different breed of coaches. I learned a lot from him. He's a gentleman. He's a great man.
"Things inevitably change after the departure of a coach who was at the club for 22 years. You have to change things, start over. It's not easy. But Arsenal is a great club, a beautiful club that has all my respect."
