Arsene Wenger has fooled us all once again.
The Gunners boss came under fire for only managing to sign a crocked 31-year-old Swede on loan for the remainder of the season in January.
But we can reveal that Wenger had been working on a top secret deal that paid dividends for the first time during Sunday’s FA Cup clash with Liverpool.
Wenger has managed to complete the signing of ‘top’ Premier League referee Howard Webb from Manchester United.
Webb said on his unveiling at Arsenal’s training ground:
“It’s great to be here. Obviously, I’ve been at Manchester United for many years, but once Sir Alex left, it didn’t feel right.
“I don’t want to be working for an amateur manager like David Moyes.
“I had a loan spell under Jose Mourinho in December, and did well against Liverpool.
“But when Wenger came calling, I knew this was the right move for me.
“I can’t wait to get started and bottle some more big penalty decisions.
