皮雷转投西甲劲旅

2006-05-26 08:17

  北京时间5月25日伦敦消息,阿森纳官方网站宣布,法国球星皮雷与西甲劲旅比利亚雷亚而签约,在海布里效力6年的老将终结了枪手生涯。

  32岁皮雷为阿森纳总共出场284次,攻入84个进球。2002年荣膺英格兰记者评选的英超年度最佳球员,阿森纳队中只有5人享受过这一荣耀,皮雷就是其中之一。从2000年夏天加盟阿森纳到2006年5月确认离开,皮雷总共帮助球队拿到4座冠军奖杯,两次英超冠军(01- 02赛季和03-04赛季)和两次足总杯冠军(03年和05年)。在阿森纳创造不败神话的03-04赛季,皮雷是球队中不可或缺的一人,是球队中仅次于亨利的二号射手并且是英超联赛的中场杀手王。2003年,他在决赛中攻入致胜球帮助阿森纳捧起那一年的足总杯冠军奖杯。

  不过皮雷与阿森纳的续约谈判一直很不顺利,从去年夏天开始,他就传出可能离开球队的消息。双方之间的主要分歧是在合同年限,皮雷希望续约两年,不过阿森纳的惯例是:对于年龄超过30岁的球员都是一年一签。后来双方同意暂时停止谈判,到冬天的时候再讨论,用半年的时间考虑,不过冬天依然没什么进展。冠军联赛半决赛阿森纳对阵比利亚雷亚而的时候,西班牙媒体已经曝出皮雷与潜水艇草签协议,但是皮雷从球队利益出发一直表示要到赛季全部结束之后才会考虑个人问题。上周五皮雷表示会跟俱乐部和温格“摊牌”,从最后结果看双方还是以分手结束。

  要离开自己效力了6年的球队,皮雷感到十分不舍和遗憾。他通过阿森纳官方网站对球迷说:“我在阿森纳度过了6年的美妙时光,这其中每一刻都是完美的,不可思议的。现在我已经决定接受比利亚雷亚而提供的为期2年的新合同。我要感谢温格,感谢队友,感谢球迷,在这6年中给我的支持。”

  温格说:“皮雷跟我们一起走过了6个极好的年头,他为球队的成功做出了巨大贡献。他不止是一个伟大的球员,也是一个人好人,所以对他的离开我们感到十分难过。在阿森纳夺得双冠王的01-02赛季,他的表现超级好,阿森纳以不败战绩夺得英超冠军的那个赛季,他攻入了19个进球。感谢皮雷,感谢他为球队的贡献,希望他在接下去的职业生涯中一切顺利。”

  官方网站在报导这个消息时最后一句话写道:阿森纳俱乐部的每一人都祝愿皮雷今后一路顺风,在职业生涯中续写成功。

  签下布罗基整整两天后,皮雷从阿森纳离开。对于处在新陈代谢时期的阿森纳来说,这样的改动顺理成章。去年是维埃拉,今年是皮雷,以及博格坎普的退役,创造不败神话时期的枪手老将们一个一个淡出舞台,一支全新的阿森纳正在铸造中。

Pires finally decides - a two-year deal with Villarr

  Robert Pires has ended his six-year association with Arsenal after he joined Spanish side Villarreal.

  The 32-year-old French midfielder, who won the World Cup in 1998, had hoped to extend his stay with the Gunners as they prepared for the start of a new era at the Emirates Stadium, but wanted the security of a longer-term deal rather than a 12-month extension which was on offer.

  In all, Pires made a total of 284 appearances for Arsenal, scoring 84 goals following his £6million move from Marseille during the summer of 2000, when he also helped Les Bleus to European Championship glory.

  The midfielder, named Football Writers' Player of the Year in 2002, was instrumental in the Gunners' recent success, helping Arsene Wenger's side to two league championships and collecting two FA Cup winners' medals.

  However, his last appearance for Arsenal ended in disappointment when he was substituted after just 20 minutes of the Champions League final against Barcelona in Paris following the dismissal of goalkeeper Jens Lehmann.

  Pires maintains he will only have fond memories of his time at Highbury.

  He said: 'After six wonderful years at Arsenal, full of fantastic moments, I have decided to accept a new challenge at Villarreal for the next two years of my career.

  'I am very grateful to Arsene Wenger, the players and all the fans for their amazing support over the years.'

  Wenger moved to strengthen his midfield options earlier this week with the signing of Czech Republic international Tomas Rosicky, 25.

  The Arsenal manager, however, knows his squad will be poorer for the departure of Pires.

  Wenger said: 'Robert has had six tremendous years with us and made a huge contribution to the team's success during his time here.

  'He is not only a great footballer but a good man, so of course, we are sad to see him go.

  'It is difficult to pick out one or two highlights - but he was superb in our double winning season during the 2001/02 campaign and contributed so hugely to our unbeaten season with 19 goals.

  'I would like to thank Robert for the dedication, determination and passion he has shown and wish him well in his career.'
