Barcelona midfielder still in contact with Arsenal boss

Published Add your comment

Barcelona midfielder Alex Song has revealed that he remains in contact with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, despite his exit from the club in the summer of 2012.

The Cameroonian international has struggled to force his way into the Blaugrana side on a regular basis since the move, appearing in a bit-part role both last season and this for the La Liga champions under two different managers.

And, whilst making no suggestion of a potential return to the Gunners, Song has admitted that he still communicates occasionally with the Emirates Stadium chief.

"When I played at Arsenal we talked a lot. He was my coach, but he was also like a father because he helped me and taught me a lot of things about the Premier League, that is the best league in the world . Now we still communicate with each other occasionally," he told Spanish paper El Pais.

Song joined the Gunners in 2005, and became a first-team regular under Wenger from 2008 onwards in north London.

However, his exit came just a year after Cesc Fabregas left Arsenal for the Nou Camp, and the club haven't looked like winning a trophy since the duo left for pastures new in Catalonia.

Fabregas has enjoyed a little more joy since joining Barcelona from a playing perspective, and has also featured regularly this term under Gerardo Martino.

The Spaniard also has a close relationship with Wenger, admitting recently that he owes the Arsenal manager 'everything' for his career to-date.
