Lucas Perez Might Leave Arsenal Over Losing His No 9 Shirt
Spanish Striker, Lucas Perez wants out of his team Arsenal over the ‘ugly gesture’ of taking away his No 9 shirt, without asking and giving it to his team mate, Alexandre Lacazette, was the ‘final straw’.
According to The Spanish newspaper La Voz de Galicia, quoted Perez saying:
“They [Arsenal] are not behaving well with me.
“The thing of taking the shirt number without telling me to give it to a companion. It seems to me the last straw.
“I can not continue this way. I have given everything, but that has not been reciprocated, so I can’t stand it any longer.
“I feel cheated. In February I was not allowed to leave for China with the promise that I would play more and after that I had even fewer opportunities.
“But the shirt number is an ugly gesture. On the trip, Lacazette asked the boss and he accepted. Afterwards, he told me.
“Last year he [Wenger] told me that he understood that I was upset. I think this season things will get worse, so help me out.”
Perez also said:
‘Since I have been a professional footballer, I’ve felt happiest in Deportivo, surrounded by my family and my friends. Put yourself in my place.
‘I know I have chances to play for the national team. To play at the World Cup. But for that I have to play and I have to be happy. That’s why I want to go back to Coruna.’
