Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was questioned today in his press conference about his thoughts on Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge expressing his unhappiness about being asked to play out of position on the wing rather than his preferred central attacking position.
Wenger’s response was an amazingly articulate one on the relationship between a club and its players. He said, “I believe that to sign a contract with a club is firstly a social contract. That means social responsibility towards the club and the team and to serve the best interests of the club. If that coincides with your own interests, it’s even better. But the priority is of course first to serve the club.”
In simpler words, be happy when you get a chance to play in your position of choice, but if the team needs you to put in a shift somewhere else, shut up and do the job the Manager needs you to!
