Jealous Arsene Wenger describes Ballack’s Euro 2008 as perfect…

With the superb Flamini seemingly leaving Dubaibury for any major club who’ll take him, Arsenal fans would probably kill to get their mitts on a world class creative midfielder like Chelsea and Germany’s Michael Ballack. For me, he’s been the player of Euro 2008 so far, and surprisingly Arsenal’s “voyeur” agrees.

‘You can’t fault Ballack at this tournament,’ haw-he-hawed the Frenchie to Sun journalists over a baguette, some fromage, and perchance a splash of vino. ‘I’m happy for him because he has not always got the respect he deserved in Germany.’ Nice words Arsene. But just enjoy the watching. You can’t have Ballack.

If Lampard leaves for Jose’s Inter, Ballack is going to be the key player in the Scolari regime. I imagine he will become the new vice captain, as well as being the driving force in the midfield. In all seriousness, Scolari should save his pennies and not buy Deco. Ballack and Essien are all Chelsea need in the center of the park. Ballack has proved he’s the far superior player to Deco during these European Championships.

Money could be much better spent on a creative genius ahead of Ballack. Someone like Kaka, Ronaldinho, or Berbatov…
