Chilean star bringing big ambition to the Emirates.
New Arsenal signing Alexis Sanchez has revealed that one of the main reasons he chose to join the club is because he believes the club can win trophies, Inside Futbol reports.
Arsene Wenger’s men ended a trophy drought which had run since 2005 last year, picking up the FA Cup by beating Hull City at Wembley.
And Wenger is now signalling his intent for the coming campaign by splashing out on the Barcelona forward, and having just arrived from one of the most successful clubs on the planet the Chilean star is hoping for more of the same in north London.
“Playing regularly wasn’t the only reason I came here, I came here to win things. The league title, the Champions League, in fact every title at stake”, Sanchez told Arsenal Player.
“The most important thing is to be calm and not to rush things too much.
“Everything will be fine as long as I take it easy and calm down, but I’m also looking forward to showing the fans what I can do and why I’m here.”
Sanchez also highlighted the chance of working with Arsene Wenger as another key factor in his decision to spurn the advances of Liverpool and Juventus.
“I feel happy to be here. I know this club has a manager that looks after his players and really takes care of them. I’m here to win titles and to achieve as much as possible,” he added.
“I know that Arsenal is a club that really cares about its players. I feel I can learn a lot here. They have a great team and that’s why I decided to arrive.
“I was told [Wenger is] a manager you can learn a lot with, who wants to achieve great things in football, and that’s what helped me make the decision to sign for Arsenal.”
Arsenal fans will likely get their first glimpse of their new signing in next month’s annual Emirates Cup.
