Video: Gedion Zelalem Clearly Wishes He Was Back at Rangers in Miserable Interview

Arsenal midfielder Gedion Zelalem has given his first interview whilst on-loan at his new temporary club – but he clearly looks like he’d rather be back with former loan club Rangers.

The German-born United States Under-23 internationalist spent last season in the Scottish Championship with the Gers, where he helped the club win the league and reach the Scottish Cup final.

But rather than heading back to Glasgow for a second loan spell, his parent club Arsenal clearly feel Zelalem could do with broadening his horizons, and the 20-year-old will spend the campaign with Dutch second-tier side VVV-Venelo.

Arsene Wenger and his coaching team might think it’s the right move for the promising play-maker, but we’re not convinced Zelalem does:

He might be saying he’s happy but he certainly doesn’t look it.

Surely one more year in the Scottish top-flight with a giant club like Rangers would have benefited a promising player like him more than playing in the Dutch lower league, no?

By the looks of things, we’re willing to bet he’d jump on a plane at a moment’s notice to head back to Ibrox – surely Mark Warburton would take him?

Let us know in the comments section below…
