Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez says he has no regrets switching the Camp Nou for the Emirates, according to ESPN. The forward left the Catalan club in 2014 for a fee in the region of £35m and he believes he did the best thing for his career.
“I never regret my decisions,” Sanchez said in the Daily Mirror. “It wasn’t easy to leave Barcelona. I fulfilled a dream when I moved there — to play in Spain and for the champions — but very few players stay in the same club all their life. To leave is normal. I wanted a new project, a new experience. And with so many attacking players at Barca it was a good choice to go.”
The striker reportedly turned down a move to Liverpool in favour of a switch to the Emirates and he believes it was the right decision moving to Arsenal.
“The directors told me clubs were interested. So I think it was a good choice to go to Arsenal, the best choice. It has been a positive move and I love it at Arsenal,” said Sanchez, who hopes to lead the club to the Premier League title this season.
“Winning the FA Cup last year was the best moment so far in my career at Arsenal — along with making my debut in the Premier League — and I hope there are many more trophies to come.”
Sanchez has scored 22 league goals in 53 games for the Gunners since moving in 2014.
