Arsenal have renewed Eduardo’s contract. While the details of the contract remain undisclosed, Manager Arsene Wenger expressed his joy with the deal: “We’re delighted that Eduardo has signed a new long-term contract with us.
“Eduardo is a special player with huge talent and natural goalscoring ability, and we’re all so happy that he has committed his future to Arsenal Football Club.
“We have also seen in his comeback from injury, Eduardo is a human being full of courage, bravery and commitment.
“His full recovery from this injury is a testament to Eduardo’s character. We all look forward to enjoying Eduardo’s performances in an Arsenal shirt for a long time to come.”
The renewal comes amidst rumours of his departure from the club. He is expected to play a more prominant role with the Gunners especially with Robin Van Persie’s injury.
Eduardo said of the deal: “I am very pleased to have signed a new long contract with the club. I’m very happy and I hope to stay at Arsenal for as long as I can.
“This period is good for me now. I feel strong in my body and I feel ready to play 90 minutes every three days if it’s needed.
“I went to Croatia last week and everybody was telling me Arsenal play the best football in Europe at the moment. I agree with that.
“We feel we are strong now this season and we’re all going to give everything to win trophies.”
