LONDON. — Alexis Sanchez says he has no regrets about leaving Barcelona as he prepares to face his old club in the Champions League soccer.
Arsenal star Sanchez, signed from Barca for £35million in July 2014, is ready to line up against the Catalan giants at the Emirates tonight — and admits the second leg in the Nou Camp will be emotional. But having scored 35 goals for the Gunners already, including one in their FA Cup final victory over Aston Villa last season, he insists that coming to England was the right decision.
“I never regret my decisions,” he said. “It wasn’t easy to leave Barcelona. I fulfilled a dream when I moved there — to play in Spain and for the champions — but very few players stay in the same club all their life. To leave is normal.” — The Mirror.
