Ex-Arsenal forward, Willian has come out to admit that he wanted to leave the club after 3 months. He recently revealed that he arrived at that decision because he was just not happy at the Emirates.
According to him, his sadness at Arsenal made it impossible for him to perform well on the pitch, but he won’t go into the details behind his unhappiness at the club.
Willian added that he was very happy immediately he arrived the club and met his new teammates, but all that changed after some time.
His words, “I was not happy, that’s why I didn’t perform. I don’t want to go into the details, but I wasn’t happy.”
“So, when I arrived there I was happy, from the beginning I was motivated, I wanted to do well, new club, new mates, new projects.”
“After three months, I told my agent ‘please, I want to go’. I don’t want to speak bad about the club because it is a big club, has a big history in football, big players played there before it’s a big club – but it didn’t work, it was of course the most difficult time of my career.”
“Yeah, it was big money that I gave up – money is not the most important thing in life, you need to be happy, to be getting pleasure and wake up and want to go to training,”
“I wasn’t having that, so I said to myself, with my family and my wife ‘I cannot stay here, I am not happy here, I have to leave and find a way out to leave the club.’ For me, it is unfair to stay in a place you don’t want to stay just because of the money.”
