Former Arsenal winger Marc Overmars previously contacted ex teammate Ray Parlour telling him he wanted to ‘sort out’ problems at the club. The two played together in North London during the late 90’s during one of the most successful period’s in the clubs history.
Speaking on talkSPORT Parlour revealed that Overmars, current football director at Ajax, had recently been in touch with him:
‘Obviously he worked in Brazil, even little Marc Overmars… I’ve had a text off him before saying “oh Ray, I need to go back to that club and sort it out” because he obviously was at Ajax and he sacked Dennis Bergkamp believe it or not and Frank de Boer.
‘They’ve gone with Edu. It’s a very important role you’ve got to play as what he’s doing now, recruitment, is so important, very, very important for any club.
‘I don’t know what the relationship is like with Mikel Arteta, I’ve not been around the guys.’
