Thanks to Arsenal for their interest – Monchi.
Monchi has flanked a thank you massage to Arsenal FC for their interest in his services while he returns to rejoin Sevilla.
A number of European clubs wanted the service of the 50-year-old man but he decided to return to Spain, two years after leaving for Roma.
Arsenal wanted him as their sporting director, just weeks after head of recruitment Sven Mislintat’s departure in February with a big effort to try and sign the Spaniard but he insists a emotional return to Spain was too hard to turn down.
”I thank Arsenal for their interest.
”It has been the club that has shown the most interest in me but, in the end, I evaluated all of the offers I had on the table and I chose the one that convinced me most.
”I had other options, and very important ones that were flashier, but I’ve chosen Sevilla because its sporting project convinced me.
”I want to thank everyone that contributed to my return to what I consider to be my home.’
