Arsenal and French International Mathieu Debuchy has admitted he thought about leaving the club after losing his position in pecking other at the Emirates to Spaniard Hector Bellerin.
Debuchy Joined the Gunners last term as a possible replacement for Bacary Sagna who moved to rivals Manchester City.
30-year-old Debuchy was bought from Newcastle United for £12million last season and he is yet to make a mark in the team having just 11 starts last season due to injury problems with his ankle ligaments and a dislocated shoulders.
Recently Debuchy hinted he was close to leaving the Emirates this summer ‘It is difficult,’ Debuchy told L’Equipe. ‘Even if I had not played a lot last season, in my head I would return to start after my recovery.
‘But, at the Community Shield against Chelsea, Wenger chose him, Bellerin,’ he added. It was a surprise and a disappointment.
‘Let’s say it (leaving) crossed my mind. But I want to be at Arsenal and to take my place.’
