Ex-Arsenal player, Kolo Toure has come out to say that a slide tackle on Arsene Wenger changed his career for the better. He recently revealed this during an interview with the press, and football fans have been reacting.
According to him, he was really fortunate to be able to go to the trial at the Emirates stadium, and it was a very memorable 2 weeks in his life.
Toure added that the tackle made Wenger see how much he wanted to be successful as a footballer, and he was eventually signed.
His words, “I was really fortunate to be able to go to that trial. I spent two weeks there and, as you know, I put that tackle in on Arsene Wenger!”
“You know, I think that slide-tackle changed my career. It showed the manager just how much I wanted to be successful, and how much I wanted to become a professional footballer. That’s how he took it, anyway.”
“All the players were laughing and I was in shock! I thought they were going to get rid of me there and then – but Arsene is an intelligent guy; he only saw a young African boy who was keen to impress him, and gave me that opportunity to express myself and show what I was capable of doing.”
