Prospective Arsenal signing Savic sings Man Utd praises

Montenegrin defender Stefan Savic admits he is joining Arsenal after seeing them turned over by Manchester United on Sunday.

The 19-year-old, who is currently contracted to Serbian side BSK Borca, claims a deal is due to be signed in the coming days following a successful trial period at the Gunners' training ground in leafy Hertfordshire.

Savic said: "A pre-contract will be signed on Thursday and then I will return to Belgrade and join BSK for their preparations. I will be staying with BSK until May.

"I was on the terraces and it must have been hard for the lads on the pitch.

"United had a terrific game, especially Nani.

"Wenger was extremely mad during the training session on Monday. This defeat means the league title will be extremely hard to reach right now."

The player added: "Wenger is the man. He has incredible authority at the club - everyone listens to him, assistants lead training sessions and he just supervises. Nothing can escape him."
