Corinthians winger Willian opens up on 'complicated' season at Arsenal

Former Arsenal flop Willian has admitted he could not "adapt to the club".

The Brazilian joined Arsenal from Chelsea in 2020 but failed to make an impact in his only session with the north London club.

Now with Corinthians, Willian has opened up on his decision to leave Arsenal.

"My year at Arsenal was a bit complicated. I really couldn't adapt to the club. I wasn't happy there," Willian told Arena SBT, via Sport Witness.

"To make it very clear too, it wasn't the club that wanted me to leave. I wanted to leave the club.

"I expressed my feeling [and] said I wasn't happy. I said I wanted to look elsewhere, another place to play. And, so there was this decision to leave.

"There are things in life that money can't buy, money doesn't pay for. You have joy, happiness, peace, a solid family. I think this is the most important thing for me."
