Why I Left Arsenal, Willian Opens Up

Published

on

Former Chelsea star Willian has opened up on why he struggled at Arsenal after moving to North London from Stamford Bridge in 2020.

He admits that playing a season behind closed doors ‘without the buzz of the crowd’ hugely impacted him.

The Brazilian joined Arsenal after spending seven successful years at Chelsea.

He only registered two assists on his debut for the Gunners and would leave the Gunners after just one year.


He then moved to Brazil, where he played briefly for Corinthians and the 34-year-old is now back in London with Fulham.

He told The Athletic, “I didn’t see Arsenal fans. Maybe I needed to feel the buzz of the crowd, that it was something I missed. It was a difficult moment not just for me, but for everyone in the world. To play without fans at a new club is not easy.

“On my last day there, I spoke with the manager Mikel Arteta. I thanked him a lot for what he had done for me, for bringing me to Arsenal. I just wished him all the best.

“He is a good manager and I have great respect for Arsenal. They are doing well, they have good players. They can achieve good things this season.”

Former Chelsea star, Glenn Johnson has provided his prediction for Saturday’s North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham.

Mikel Arteta’s side will receive Antonio Conte’s Spurs at the Emirates on Saturday.

The Gunners would be leapfrogged by Tottenham at the top of the Premier League table if they hand Arteta’s side their second defeat of the season.

Arsenal has won six out of seven of their opening games, losing once to Manchester United.


Spurs are unbeaten and just a point behind them in third, with Tottenham able to leapfrog their rivals with a victory.

Johnson told SafeBettingSites: “It’s going to be a tough one to call, to be honest.

“Tottenham looks great, Arsenal looks great. Finally, we’ve got two good teams going into the north London derby!.

‘This is their first big test, for both teams. [I’m going] 2-1 to Arsenal.’

Martinez Is A Proper Defender, Says Sagna

Published

on

Former Arsenal and Manchester City right-back, Bacary Sagna has hailed Manchester United’s newly signed centre-back, Lisandro Martinez, describing him as a ‘proper’ defender.

According to Sagna, the Argentine has given the Red Devils’ attacking players the perfect platform to play.

Martinez joined Manchester United over the summer in the deal around £47million.

The Argentina international has formed a formidable partnership with Raphael Varane in Erik ten Hag’s central defence and was named United’s player of the month for August.


And Sagna pointed out that Martinez is exactly the type of player that the Red Devils have been missing in recent years.

“Lisandro Martinez at United, that guy is a real defender!” Sagna told Lord Ping.

“He is serious – there is nothing flashy about his play. He does his job perfectly. Not only does he have great ability on the ball, but he relishes the duels – he engages attackers.

“As a defender, you have to be scary, strong. Some defenders forget they are defenders, they want to be skilful at the back.

“He makes United solid and gives a platform for their attacking players to shine – that is the job of a proper defender.”
