The facilities were great, but from my house in Canning Town over to north London was a nightmare journey for my dad.”I’ve never regretted (leaving) that decision for a moment, but the one thing I would say about Arsenal are a club I have always admired,” he said.“They are a class act, even down to small details like the away changing room, and their business model is also incredible.“Compared to the other London clubs, I do feel they have an advantage in attracting players, especially from abroad.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img
