Atletico Madrid midfielder Lucas Torreira has lifted the lid on his problems at parent club Arsenal.
Torreira admits the language barrier hindered his progress at Arsenal and motivated him to join Atletico Madrid on loan this season.
He told AS: “This affects me a lot.
“I have two Uruguayan colleagues, a Uruguayan teacher, an Argentine coaching staff and language is an important factor, too.
“I was in England for two years and that issue cost me, beyond that I was taking classes.
“I know that I came to Atletico Madrid, a club with a lot of hierarchy that fights important things, that also influenced this decision I made.”
