Since the beginning of this year, Arsenal have endured a torrid form in the Premier and Champions League, and some players have been reportedly unhappy.
Lucas Perez has revealed that he is happy at Arsenal and is ready to wait for first-team opportunities to come his way, as per the Sun.
This is what he had to say:
“Arsenal are a big club and the competition for places is strong. Everyone wants to play and that is normal.”
“Today[on Monday] I am happy because I played and scored a goal but now I need to continue like this to convince the boss to trust me more.”
“After I scored a hat-trick in the Champions League against Basel the boss didn’t count on me, but that means some team-mates are very good.”
“The team has now had a losing streak of three or four games so I have to wait for my moment and make the most of the opportunity when it arrives.”
The Spaniard is one of the very few Arsenal players who still genuinely excite me as a fan when he gets the nod.
He has managed to notch 7 goals and 5 assists in 9 appearances for the Gunners since his arrival from Deportivo La’Coruna however, the question on everyone’s lip is “why isn’t he starting regularly? “.
Ever since his debut against Southampton at the Emirates, there have been requests for his inclusion in the starting line-up, especially in big games. There is a certain kind confidence and drive he brings to the squad with a bullet of a left leg for shots with precision and an eye for intricate passes and final balls.
