Jermaine Jenas certainly played his part in one of the most memorable North London derbies of all-time. In 2008, it was his stunning late goal at the Emirates that set up a grandstand finish as Spurs completed a remarkable comeback from 4-2 down to claim a famous point.
The 4-4 thriller, in his words, had Spurs fans “leaving sad, coming back, then leaving happy” but now he’s revealed that the story could have been very different.
In 2005, Arsene Wenger went public with his admiration for the young England midfielder but Jenas believes the Frenchman decided against submitting a bid to his then-club, Newcastle United thanks to… Francis Jeffers.
Find out why in Jenas’s own words in the video above.
