AZ striker Boadu: I don't regret rejecting Arsenal

AZ striker Myron Boadu is happy he rejected Arsenal this summer.

The 17-year-old had the opportunity to join the Gunners but elected to remain in the Netherlands.

"I will never forget the moment I got on the plane, I thought, 'This may be an important day in my life'," Boadu told Elf Voetbal when asked about the potential move to England.

"If we had said yes, it would have had far-reaching consequences for our family.

"It was attractive to go, but I also got a very good offer from AZ."

He added on having no regrets: "I'm playing in the first team now.

"I do not know if that would have been the case at Arsenal, where I would play with boys of my own age, which did not appeal to me."
