I think what you write is fair but for the sake of balance Nico did start in away games v Blackburn, PNE, QPR, Norwich and Hull this season where we were at our very worst.Nico played a crucial role for us in picking up vital away points over the years. I remember some stellar performances when we needed to dig in. I can't help but feel we'd have picked up more points away from home with him in the team.
We all agree he's not good enough in a footballing side aiming for Premier League football, and we definitely sold at the right time given the money involved. But he definitely posseses a quality we've missed in the squad this year.
Of course, no disputing he was very poor this season before he left. Although his focus may have been influenced by his imminent move to China.I think what you write is fair but for the sake of balance Nico did start in away games v Blackburn, PNE, QPR, Norwich and Hull this season where we were at our very worst.
According to the BBC, China had a policy of only picking Chinese-born players i.e. refusing to pick naturalised players from overseas.Called up to the Chinese national team.
Arsenal reserve yes.Made his first appearance for China in a friendly win over the Philippines. In doing so became the first footballer born outside China to represent the national team.
Bit harsh calling him “the former Arsenal & Brentford reserve.” He was regularly around the 1st team during his time with us playing over 100 games.
What a scoop :thumbsup:Just had a weekend away, and whilst in the pool, got talking to a Spurs fan who is a butcher
and has a couple of shops in Tottenham, and Nico’s Mum is a good customer. She says he’s
doing very well in China, and recently took all the family on an exotic holiday.
Good luck to him
Old news. He did this around the time he arrived thereChanged his name to Li Ke which probably means I used to play for Arsenal
Nico Yennaris is not Nico Yennaris anymore, instead it is Li Ke after he made the move to China where he has become an adopted son after changing his nationalitywww.mirror.co.uk
OK, I guess that a Chinese law. I have quite a few friends and relations (like my sister) who have both UK passports and one of their citizenship, although my sister is not bothering to renew her UK one now as it no longer has any real benefit to her. Having just received a new black one myself, she doesn't even like the colour!He can’t hold Chinese citizenship dually with British.
I don't know for certain, but I suspect China, like eg Japan, is one of those countries which requires you to renounce all other citizenships if you are to hold/acquire their citizenship.He can’t hold Chinese citizenship dually with British.
