French club chase Arsenal man to the airport

ARSENAL signing Chu Young Park did a runner while signing for French champions Lille – and was chased by angry Frenchmen all the way to the airport.
The Ligue 1 champions had the Monaco striker and South Korean captain waiting while a contract was drawn up, after he passed a medical and agreed to sign.
But a last minute phone call from Arsene Wenger changed his mind – and Park sneaked off to fly to London to complete a £3m deal with The Gunners.
Lille chairman Michel Seydoux – who dispatched staff in a failed attempt to intercept the player before he left the country – said: WFor someone who’s always preaching about morals, Wenger showed distinct lack of class.”
