MALAYSIA - Many superstars who played in the just concluded Euro 2012 were not in sight as Arsenal Football Club started their summer training, but Arsene Wenger promises that each and every one of them will be on the flight to Kuala Lumpur for the team’s Far East Tour 2012.
Among those taking a well-deserved break are Tomas Rosicky, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, in addition to Gunners’ new faces Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud.
Wenger, who will be bringing his charges down to Malaysia for the third time as Arsenal’s man-in-charge, says that with no injury concern so far, fans can expect a star-studded line-up when his team take on the Malaysian XI at the National Stadium Bukit Jalil on July 24.
“The Malaysian fans are a pretty lucky bunch, I can say that much,” Wenger says. “Not only will they be able to catch all their favourite players in action, they would also be the first in the world to watch our new signings such as Podolski and Giroud taking to the pitch in the Arsenal jersey.”
Wenger adds that he is personally looking forward to the trip, too. He says the hospitality and treatment Arsenal received in Malaysia have always been great.
“I like talking to fans there and Malaysians in general. They are not only passionate about the club, but they are very knowledgeable about football as well, especially the English Premier League. I’m sure this is going to be another great tour.”
Tickets for the match are priced at RM58, RM68, RM108 and limited VIP tickets at RM388. Tickets are available at all Ticketpro outlets nationwide, Ticketpro hotline 03-7880-7999 and www.ticketpro.com.my.
NOTE: Arsenal Training Session will be held on 23rd July 2012, 8.30PM at National Stadium, Bukit Jalil.
