Danilo Pereira has come out to say that he sees himself fitting in well at Arsenal.
He recently revealed that the club’s style of play actually suits the type of football he thrives with.
According to him, Arteta is doing very well and he likes the way he sets up his players to think on the ball and be united on the pitch.
Hw added that even if he loves playing at Porto, he wants to feature in a better league like the Premier League someday.
His words, “I think he [Arteta] is doing a really, really, good job there,”
“He is a really good coach who started as the second coach at [Manchester] City, so he has a little experience and Arsenal play very good football and I think he is doing very well there.
“He is a Spanish coach, he is a bit similar to Portuguese coaches, they also want to play with the ball and improve with the ball, so I think he is a good coach.
“The style I think I can fit there, the way he plays also thinking on the ball, the team always has to be together I think it is a good way to play.
“Of course I like to be here in Porto to be here in my country, but I want to be in a better league like the Premier League.
“I always dreamed about playing in that league. I played also in Serie A but I think the Premier League is a huge league and one day I want to play there, to improve to be a better player. I think it’s the best league in the world.”
On comparisons with Patrick Vieira, “It is an honour to be compared to this kind of legend.
“I also have to think Abel Xavier for these words, sometimes I don’t like to be compared to another football player but to me it is an honour to see Abel Xavier talking about me in that way.
“I grew up seeing Patrick Vieira playing in Arsenal so he is one of my idols so it is very good to hear that from Abel Xavier.”
