Macey opens up on Arsenal exit after impressive start with Hibs

Matt Macey has no regrets about leaving Arsenal this past summer.

The English goalkeeper joined Scottish club Hibernian after spending eight years in north London without a single first-team appearance.

Macey has started every game for Hibs this season, a stat which he feels vindicates his decision to leave the Gunners.

He told The Daily Record: "I get asked a lot if I could have left Arsenal earlier.

"It's not always as easy as that at a big club. There are responsibilities for the manager to protect, in terms of players picking up injuries at the top level.

"One thing I'd say is that every summer, I always looked to go and play football, whether it was on loan or to leave Arsenal. For whatever reason it didn't happen. I'm just lucky that when I did decide to make the jump, it worked out really well at Hibs."
