Former Barcelona player Denis Suarez cannot refute the fact that his career at Arsenal is a disappointment. In fact, the person concerned had turned down many lucrative offers for the sake of joining the Gunners.
Denis Suarez had indeed played for Arsenal on loan from Barcelona during the second half of the 2018/19 season.
Unfortunately, during the six months of defending the Gunners, the player only recorded 6 appearances throughout the loan period. In fact, from the 6 appearances, Suarez only recorded two appearances since the first minute.
To The Athletic, Denis Suarez admitted that his period at Arsenal was very disappointing, but there was a share of Unai Emery’s coach in it.
“Obviously it’s a bad loan because I didn’t play. But there are some situations, which I want fans to understand. The coach told me that he was looking for a winger – where Alex Iwobi or Henrikh Mkhitaryan played. ”
“That is not my best position but I can play on the wing. He insisted to me, ‘Come here. You will play. Do not survive in Barcelona. Play, play and keep playing and we can sign you’, “he told The Athletic.
Persuasion from the Spanish manager even made Denis Suarez reject offers from a number of clubs, such as Sevilla, AC Milan and Real Betis. In fact, these clubs claim to be ready to redeem the player permanently from Barcelona.
“I could have joined other clubs on a four or five year contract. That’s how I feel to play for Arsenal. So people don’t fully understand what’s happening, “Suarez exclaimed.
After the 2018/19 campaign ended, Denis Suarez finally returned to the arms of Barcelona. But because there is no guarantee of getting a share of playing in the first team, he finally agreed to move the club in the transfer market last summer.
The 26-year-old midfielder agreed to join the La Liga club, Celta Vigo. In his new cub, Denis Suarez became the mainstay and got more playing time.
While Unai Emery himself was eventually kicked out of the Arsenal manager’s chair, his figure has now been replaced by Mikel Arteta.
