What a player. A year ago nobody had heard of him. Now he's world famous with that third goal in the World Cup Final, having already won the Double with Arsenal. But how things could have been so different. Spurs were after him and if he'd been daft enough to sign for them he wouldn't have even been in the French squad. Instead he took a taxi paid for by the Spurs chairman down the road to Arsenal, signed for Arsene Wenger, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Emmanuel Petit is a football player. It was rather clear in Cybury_Gooner's text but not explicitly written.

Other facts : Emmanuel Petit has long, blond hair ; petit in French means short, or small.

Emmanuel Petit was sold to F.C. Barcelona in August 2000 along with Mark Overmars for about 30 million pounds. The two players actually joined the club on the same day three years ago.
