Can you guess which former Arsenal player is being talked about here?

“He’s had a huge impact on the club and Singapore football. Someone of his stature and, frankly, quite iconic status engenders an excitement and vibe which was much needed for Singapore football in the early stages of the season. While the club could afford his wages, it would also send the wrong message to all the other players that one player is getting a super-scale salary while the others have to take a pay cut. It would create a social injustice.”

Answer: Tampines Rovers boss suit Krishna Ramachandra on Jermaine Pennant’s reluctance to accept a reduction in his reported £23,495-a-month salary.
