Jamie O’Hara has apparently poked fun at Ben White for joining Arsenal, arguing Tottenham Hotspur is a much bigger attraction for transfer targets.
Arsenal have not finished above their bitter north London rivals in the Premier League since the 2015/16 season.
However, there is a strong chance normal service will resume this season as the Gunners are three points clear of Tottenham in the race for a top-four finish – and Mikel Arteta’s side have a game in hand.
However, O’Hara, a former Spurs player, is certain his old club will be a far bigger draw for transfer targets this summer, arguing that the club’s stadium and training ground are dwarfing its Arsenal equivalent .
He said live on talkSPORT: “Number one, Tottenham have an incredible stadium, one of the biggest stadiums in the world, [they’ve got] the best training ground in the world, one of the best managers in the world, one of the best strikers in the world, one of the best left wingers in the world.
“If you look at any football club you would go to, you would go to Tottenham. Why would you go to Arsenal? Unless you’re Ben White from Brighton…’
It’s a bit of a dig from O’Hara at the £120,000-a-week [Spotrac] Arsenal defender who joined the Emirates Stadium team for £50million last summer.
But oddly enough, you can’t criticize White for joining the Gunners.
At least not yet.
That’s because, as mentioned, Mikel Arteta’s side sit fourth in the Premier League table, three points clear of Tottenham with a game in hand.
Everyone who joined Arsenal last summer is fully vindicated, and even more so if Arteta wins Champions League qualifiers.
