Arsenal’s Loan Deal with AC Milan for Philippe Senderos Officially Confirmed

Reports had in the media that Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos had undergone a medical test at AC Milan with a view to joining the Italian giant on a yearlong loan deal. However, the loan deal was not made from either side until recently. Now, the North London club confirmed that Swiss defender Senderos will play for AC Milan this season.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger thinks that Arsenal had a number of options in the defense at this moment and that is why Senderos was not getting enough first team action for Arsenal. Wenger also thinks that Senderos will get top level games at Milan. So, it is very clear that Arsenal’s congestion in the back line played big role behind his loan departure for Milan.

Yes, I agree with Mr. Wenger that Arsenal currently has a number of actions in defense and the truth is that Senderos could not become an automatic choice at Arsenal yet, even though he played 115 games so far since he joined the club in 2003. Kolo Toure and William Gallas are the first choices for Arsenal centre defense at this moment. Now, let us see if Philippe Senderos can win more first team football at AC Milan. No doubt, that will be helpful for both Philippe Senderos as well as Arsenal.
