OFFICIAL: Park completes loan move to Celta Vigo

| September 1, 2012 | 4 Comments

Unwanted Arsenal striker Ju Young Park has completed a loan move to La Liga side Celta Vigo as stated by official website

With Podolski taking his number 9 shirt earlier this month, it was evident that the South Korean was to leave, be it on a permanent or temporary basis.

His new club have only just been promoted to La Liga this season with Arsenal stating that Park will go to the club in order to maximise first-team opportunities.

The South Korean international was largely unused by Arsenal last season making only a solitary Premier League appearance after being recruited on deadline day last year.

While it is a good that a temporary move means that Arsenal no longer have to pay his wages, there is no doubt that they would have preferred for Park to leave permanently.

Although Park has obviously been considered a flop, I feel somewhat sorry for him in the sense that he never really got to prove himself at Arsenal, but that was expected considering Robin van Persie was our main man last year.

Hopefully he can get some more minutes under his belt at Celta Vigo and get his career back on track!

  • Arsenal DNA

    Two down and just Chamack & Arshavin to go. gutted Diaby is still here, that bloke is a frickin liabilty and will cost us dear. Why o Why can’t he see what everyone else does with him.

    Cannot see AW going into the season with just two stikers, even if he plays Walcott in the middle. For a squad playing in 4 competitions we are too short. Sagna has now broken his leg twice, if Jenkinson gets injured we are done for.

    Think its plain to see he will play Arteta at the back in the DM role

    Park – LOAN
    Bendtner – LOAN
    Denilson – LOAN

    Chamack and Arshavin LOAN if some club takes them on.
    Almunia / Senderos went on loan till their contracts ended.

    why do we have so many non performers ?

    Thats without the Djorous Squillacis and others that Wenger cannot see they will never be good be enough .

    If you want to buy quality you have to pay for it , Wenger thinks he can pick up another Hendry on EBAY will never happen , there are too many clubs,scouting systems doing now what Wenger was doing 15 years ago.




    The window has come and gone. Arsenal added only three players and are giving out more than that number. Wenger must be an extraordinary manager to feel he will go into all the competitions with the present squad and succeed in any. It is unfortunate we all support a team without ambition. For the board, just being amongst the top teams description is sufficient. I am praying that one day Arsenal will get back its glory. Before that happens, Wenger and the presnt board must go.
