New Arsenal chief Sanllehi: I'm extremely excited about this job

Arsenal's new head of football relations Raul Sanllehi is delighted with his move.

Sanllehi has joined Arsenal in recent weeks after over a decade with Barcelona.

Speaking at an Arsenal fans forum on Sunday, Sanllehi said he was delighted to be at Arsenal.

He said: “Extremely excited about this new project in my life. Very happy to be at the club, one of the top clubs in Europe. A club that everyone looks at. It was a no-brainier to join and very thankful for the opportunity. Someone asked me, 'Why did I join Arsenal?' I said, 'Who wouldn't!'

“When Ivan (Gazidis) explained the ideas he has got for the club and the people he wants to bring in, it was impossible to turn it down.

“Talked a lot about the great people that Arsenal have who dedicate their lives to the club and there is so much love."
