FC Barcelona midfield player Alex Song says that he would be absolutely delighted if his former club Arsenal were to finally bring an end to their long wait for a trophy this season, although the Cameroonian has confirmed that he has no intention whatsoever of returning to the north London club in the future, reports BBC Sport Online.

Song played for the Gunners for six years between 2006 and 2012 after joining the Premier League leaders from Ligue 1 outfit Bastia for just £1 million on a four-year deal in June 2006.

However, despite registering an impressive ten goals and 25 assists in total for Arsenal in his 217 matches in all competitions during his time in the capital, including seven strikes and 15 assists in his 150 Premier League outings, Song never won a trophy with the club.

But, despite quitting Arsene Wenger’s side in the summer of 2012 to join La Liga champions Barcelona for a fee of £15m, Song says that he still keeps an eye out on how his former team-mates are progressing in his absence and is encouraged by the eye-catching start the team have to this campaign.

And yet despite the obvious improvements that Wenger and Co have made, the Cameroon international is adamant that he will not be returning to north London one day.
