Former Arsenal striker Eduardo

Former Arsenal striker Eduardo unaware of Fulham interest

Former Arsenal striker Eduardo has denied any knowledge of a potential transfer to Fulham, but hinted he would like a return to the Barclays Premier League.

'You cannot come first or second every year,' says Eduardo

Eduardo: 'No one but Wenger can keep Arsenal at this level'

The former Arsenal striker Eduardo da Silva has condemned critics of Arsène Wenger, whom he believes should be given time to turn things around at the troubled club. "Sometimes people don't have patience, and they think they must win everything all the time," he said during an interview here, where he plays for the Ukrainian side Shakhtar.

Shoddy work against Shakhtar sets Arsenal tough task in Braga

Their manager's warnings about complacency having gone unheeded in one Champions League away game, Arsenal's players should at least be better prepared for the next one. A flattering 5-1 win at home to Shakhtar Donetsk was never going to be a good guide to the return in Ukraine on Wednesday, and a 2-1 defeat adds extra pressure to the next European task.

Shakhtar coach hits out at bias towards Wenger's 'grandees'

A "different world" is what the much-travelled Arsène Wenger calls it, this far east of London, and the manager of tonight's opponents Shakhtar Donetsk believes that this geography causes problems for his team with referees. The vastly experienced Mircea Lucescu, who was in charge of the Romanian national side almost 30 years ago, will have the home fires burning against Arsenal after stoking the coals last night by claiming: "Fouls committed by 'grandees' and sides from eastern Europe are interpreted differently."
