Arsenal to Play against AC Milan and Celtic in Emirates Cup in the Off Season

Arsenal will face Celtic and AC Milan in the Emirates Cup which will be organized by Arsenal in the off-season. The tournament will take place at the Emirates Stadium in between July 31 and August 1. Stan Kroenke, who holds Arsenal’s largest share, wanted to make a trip to United States, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was not interested to make a trip to outside of Europe, considering the fact that it could take a toll on the physical level of the players. Kroenke wanted this trip as he is focused on increasing the brand of the club in the US.

No doubt, it could be good if Arsenal could go to US and take part in few matches against the local teams. However, I think, Wenger has taken the right decision because a number of Arsenal players would play in this year’s world cup in South Africa and they would be exhausted by the time they would return to the club. Naturally, a trip to US would be too much for the players to remain fit for the next season.
