Former Arsenal player, Gabriel Paulista has revealed that he did get the opportunity he needed at Arsenal and he is very happy at Valencia than the English team.
Gabriel Paulista became a Valencia player in 2015 but did not play well under Arsene Wenger, making only 37 starts in the EPL in two and a half seasons at the club.
Gabriel Paulista has now disclosed that he is pleased with the regular football he is getting now compared to the crap he faced in England.
His words, “With all respect to Arsenal, I have nothing to prove to them anymore,”
“In the Premier League, I tried to prove my worth but I didn’t get the chances. When I played, it was often because of an injury to my team-mates. I deserved more opportunities.
“I was sad because I knew I had the ability to play but other people didn’t think so.
“I’m not the type of player who is affected too much by being talked about. I didn’t listen to people who talked s*** about me in England, but I don’t think anybody expected me to do the job I’m doing [at Valencia].
“There’s much more pressure here and I want to improve so much more. I want to be the best every day. That is what I work for.”
“I arrived during Arsene Wenger’s last years and you could feel something different in the locker room straight away,”
“He helped me a lot to be another kind of person on and off the pitch. He was respected by all the players and staff, but the atmosphere was so noticeable. On a daily basis, you could tell these were his last moments at the club. It showed. We knew he could go at any time.”
