Alex Song (extreme left) misses his days with Arsenal

Alex Song, the Cameroonian midfielder, who has been rendering services to FC Barcelona is much frustrated with his bench role in the team, his cousin footballer Rigobert Song, to whom Alex Song refers to as his uncle, has said. Rigobert also revealed that Alex also misses his former team Arsenal and that he doesn’t like the FC Barcelona. Despite big fishes including Manchester City and Inter Milan trying to rope him, he wants to stick to Arsenal with which he spent 6 long years.

The 25-year-old central defender Alex Song had swapped to FC Barcelona from the Gunners in 2012 for a whopping £17 million fee. But since then he is limited to a bench role in Spain’s one of the greatest football clubs. Alex Song has just made 15 appearances by now. Speaking about the growing talks that Cameroonian footballer is pretty desperate to get back to North London. Rigobert Song reveals further and states that Alex Song is down with life at Barca. He is missing being a part of Arsene Wenger’s side Arsenal.

Alex Song who had appeared for Arsenal in 138 encounters between the years 2006-2012 really misses the former team where he had much more respect than now. Song’s miserable start to life at Barca was summed up when he was recently voted the ‘flop of the season’ by a Catalan newspaper.

“Barcelona put so much effort into signing him last summer, and Alex turned down many great teams in order to sign with them. But this season he has only been a substitute. He is not happy. At Arsenal he was a leader on and off the field – he doesn’t feel like this in Spain and it makes him feel bad,” Rigobert continued adding.
