ARSENALS manager has told the club that his World Cup 2014 Brasil sticker collection takes priority over the FA Cup and Champions League.
Football obsessive Wenger has been buying up to 12 packs of stickers a day but is still searching for key players, and was booked last weekend for approaching the visitor’s dugout to see if Alan Pardew had any swaps.
Striker Lukas Podolski said: Mondays hour-long lecture on the overwhelming importance of getting it in the box turned out not to be about us adopting a long-ball game but correct sticker application.
And most sessions now are spent making human Panini albums by lying down in formation on the pitch while the manager photographs us from a crane.
According to other clubs Wenger has offered to swap midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who doesnt even get in the album because hes Welsh, for South Koreas team photo and an Iran shiny.
The manager has also put more than 195,000 stickers of USA winger DaMarcus Beasley on the transfer list.
Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis said: When I authorised £85 million to buy Diego Costas and Toni Kroos, I thought we were talking about actual players.
And where has our Japanese midfielder Ryo Miyaichi gone, and why can I hear his voice crying out for help from between the pages of that album?
