In one of those famous Wenger moments when you aren’t quite sure if he’s being ironic…or sarcastic…or one of those types of words, the Arsenal boss has come out and identified much maligned ex-Tottenham striker Helder Postiga as the danger man for upcoming Champions League opponents Porto,
“We do fear him,” said Wenger. “I rate him very highly.
“I was surprised he didn’t make it at Spurs.
“He is a player we must overcome if we want to progress in a competition where I feel we are now one of the feared clubs.”
There were high hopes for the striker Spurs signed him, but he never quite made it in the Premiership with just one league goal in his only season for the club. He also scored the equaliser and a penalty as Portugal knocked England out of Euro 2004 the following summer, which shortened supporters’ patience with him further.
