Per Mertesacker: Ruled out a move back to Germany with Wolfsburg

Reports have suggested Wolfsburg are lining up a move to sign the 28-year-old in the summer to bolster their defence.

Wolfsburg general manager, Klaus Allofs, is a big fan of Mertesacker having worked with him during their time together at Werder Bremen.

Mertesacker's future at Arsenal has been the subject of conjecture after coming in for criticism for some of his performances for Arsene Wenger's side.

However, Mertesacker insists he is happy at Arsenal and has no plans to return to his homeland.

"No, I don't consider a return to Germany. I am under contract with Arsenal and I am planning to stay on at Arsenal for more years from now," Mertesacker told Sport-BILD.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
