From Daily Telegraph football correspondent Henry Winter’s Twitter feed comes this gem, out of the mouth of Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola ahead of his team’s Champions League clash with Arsenal and young midfielder Jack Wilshere, who’s back from injury and available tomorrow:
“He’s an excellent player for Arsenal and England. We have many types of his player in our second team.”
Winter insists it was meant as a compliment, but we say scrap the context, it’s bulletin-board material for the Gunners!*
*Who will lose nonetheless.
