Unai Emery ‘A Big Part’ of Luiz’s Decision To Join Arsenal
David Luiz says that the presence of Gunners boss Unai Emery was “a big part” of his decision to join Arsenal from Chelsea on transfer deadline day.
The Brazilian briefly played for Emery at Paris Saint Germain and he says he looks forward to working with the Spaniard again at Arsenal.
“I know him, I know some people from the club. I know Edu, I know Raul, I know the quality of the team, the players, and that’s what makes me excited to dream, to have the ambition to win big things. I think all my life, I’ve always started the season with the goal to win things.
“It’s not going to be different here - I’m going to come with this mentality because this is what made me move here. This is what makes me feel good every single day. I have to run for one reason, for one goal, and my goal is to win things with Arsenal.
“It’s a big club - not just in England, but everybody around the world knows how big Arsenal is. When I had an opportunity to come to this kind of big club, I had to take it. That’s why I’m here.”
