He was involved in a promotional tour, attending Nike’s Gunners Interschool KL Challenge at SMK Seksyen 11 in Shah Alam yesterday.
Answering to various question he said “The money in football is good but that is not why I turned professional. As a player, you want to win titles, which we (Arsenal) have not been doing, but I believe we will do so soon,”
“Arsenal are a club who provide opportunities to youngsters in the English Premier League (EPL). I came up the same way. We have many more moving up the ranks and, hopefully, the young ones will provide more depth.
“As for me, I want to build on my good outing from last season for Arsenal and England. Arsenal were unlucky not to do better but I think the club will be highly motivated to achieve something in the new season.”
The 23-year-old is eager to win titles with Arsenal as insists that he wants to be remembered after retirement.
He added “Furthermore, I want to show my children and grandchildren what a good player I was”
