Answer: Thanks a lot! I feel very happy. I want to make the most of this opportunity life has given me. I am really looking forward to starting this new adventure.
Q: The Arsenal fans are clearly excited too – they were tracking your flight to London online! What do you think of that?
A: Yes, for a while I’ve been receiving loads of messages in my social media accounts. I guess it´s all down to the fact there were talks of me moving to Arsenal even before the World Cup started. I am very happy and I hope I can meet all the fans very soon.
Q: Did you know the fans were tracking your flight to London online?
A: No, I didn´t know about it, but I am here and I will see them all soon.
Q: How does that make you feel?
A: I feel calm. I am used to coping with this kind of thing in the best possible way. It´s a very positive thing that people want to welcome me. It makes me feel comfortable. Now I am calm and I look forward to the future, which for sure will be very nice.
