Arsenal went all out for glory last weekend, thrashing Premier League champions; Manchester City 3-0 to clinch the FA Community Shield title, setting themselves up in high spirit ahead of their league opener this weekend against Crystal Palace and one of Arsenal’s new signing is already enjoying the ride at Emirates.
The Gunners new right-back – Mathieu Debuchy admits that life at Arsenal is like nothing he has ever experienced before.
The France international joined the club from Newcastle United earlier in the summer and has impressed with a series of solid pre-season displays.
Debuchy is still settling into life in north London but says he has had absolutely no regrets about his decision to join the Gunners.
“It was the right time for me to make this big step forward and this big move,” he told the Arsenal Magazine.
“I have learnt a lot in the last two years from playing at Euro 2012 and the World Cup this summer, by discovering the Premier League as well.
“I am much more experienced. This was the perfect move for me to continue to improve and to win trophies too.
“When my agents told me Arsenal were interested, I said yes straight away! There was no question, no debate, no doubt, nothing! You don’t turn down a club like Arsenal. A lot of players would like to be in my shoes right now.
“This is another dimension. If you compare the training grounds for example, nothing at Lille or Newcastle can match the Arsenal one. It is another world.
“Everything here is made to optimise your preparation and you as a player. So you can be in the best condition to play and win football games.”
Debuchy will be looking to make his first home debut for Arsenal this weekend when the Gunners welcome Crystal Palace at the Emirates and will be looking to cap another fine performance adding to his already impressive pre-season campaign.
