For those of you gifted in the art of reading you will hopefully join me in pointing out that nowhere in the piece does Adel actually say that he wishes he joined Arsenal.
I have no issue with a player being depressed at thought of playing Bolton and Stoke. I have no issue with a player wanting more, wanting to better himself. Where I take exception is a journalist shy of a sensation story twists what he does have to deliberately mislead the reader.
