Arsenal midfielder Denilson believes it’s time for him to be considered by the Brasilian national team as he said how he deserves to get a chance.
Speaking to FIFA.com, the 22-year old started by praising Arsenal as a Club and manager Arsene Wenger saying how he owes the Club a lot for giving his the opportunity to work with the Frenchman. Denilson has been a regular presence in the Gunner’s midfield for the last two seasons but is now a reserve in Wenger’s plans.
The midfielder struggled to make it into the regular squad this season with Alex Song, Abou Diaby, Jack Wilshere and of course Cesc Fabregas all ahead of him in the pecking order but still believes how he can be an asset for the Brasilian side.
Denilson concluded by saying how it’s every player’s dream to play for their respective National team and how he can make it one day if he take full advantage of his chances at Arsenal by showing what he can do.
On Arsenal and Brasil, he said:
He’s helped me a lot, he’s a wonderful coach. I owe this club a lot, especially for the chance to have worked with [Wenger]. I feel very relaxed with him.
I hope I can get back involved, because it’s been a long time. I think I’ve already proven myself enough to get a chance [with Brazil].
The thing is, a lot of players have the same dream, such as the lads who are here in England and who are very good. Even so, I believe that it can happen for me too if I can put in consistently good performances and really show what I can do.
