Wenger ahead of the January transfer window had been warned by critics to land prolific players that would see off the clubs title push to the end of the season, but to the disappointment of the fans Wenger made a solitary signing of Kim Kallstrom from Russian outfit Moscow.
Kallstrom who arrived the Emirates stadium injured to the anger of the fans soon spent much of his loan spell on the treatment table with a back problem.
The 31-year-old soon got his chance on the pitch and the Arsenal fans immediately got fond of him – wanting to see the midfielder getting more playing time. But that didn’t happen as the player since his recovery from injury has only managed 135 minutes of action for the gunners
But it now seems certain that Arsenal fans will be seeing no more action from the loan midfielder as Arsenal official website announced the player’s departure ahead of the close of the season.
The Arsenal boss when asked about the player’s future said,
“He is on loan, so he belongs to Moscow and will go back to Moscow.”
When asked about his failure to sign a striker in January, Wenger replied,
“No the regret is not there because we missed offensive players at an important part of the season. The solution is not always outside, the solution is as well inside your club where the disadvantage of having many injuries is you always have to play the same players. Then of course they score less goals because they are a bit jaded.”
