Brazilian winger, Willian, has completed a long awaited transfer to the red side of London, with the deal official being announced on Friday morning and he has not wasted anytime in making his feelings known.
In an interview with Arsenal’s official website, Willian was quizzed on why he decided to join Arsenal, even with better and more lucrative contracts on the table.
“I decided to join because Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in the world. They have a new project with Mikel Arteta. I think this club deserves to shine again and I want to be a part of this project – to be a part of the Arsenal family is amazing.” he said.
Willian will hope that Arsenal can build the team enough to emulated and vindicate such statement, with the team still in need of major reinforcements to be able to compete at the top end of the Premier League and in Europe.
