Barca Loved to Play Arsenal, Recalls Dani Alves
Former Barcelona right-back Dani Alves says that Arsenal were the English side Barcelona enjoyed playing most during his time there. Manchester United and Chelsea both managed to defeat Barca during Alves’ spell there.
However, Arsenal did not manage to in three attempts while the Brazilian played for the La Liga giants. In an interview with FourFourTwo, Alves recalled, “Well, we definitely liked to face Arsenal. They had a similar football style to ours, and this sometimes helped to facilitate our way of playing.
“We were drawn against them several times with a positive outcome. They were a team we dominated and had a control over. Every time we faced Arsenal, we’d have a good result or good performance.”
Alves has since joined Juventus and this season signed for Paris Saint Germain, aiming for his fourth Champions League title as a player.
