Torreira lifts the lid on the first ever phone call with Arsenal head coach
- New appointed Arsenal defending midfielder reveals he was quite nervous and surprised to hear Unai Emery
- Lucas Torreira admits he was a bit scared to go down in flames as he couldn't speak a word
- Unai Emery has got on a phone with the 22-year-old Uruguay midfielder before his World Cup exit
"When he called me, I could not believe it. I was in a hotel with a friend, and I got nervous. It was difficult for me to talk because receiving the call from a coach of such an important team generates many things.
"We spoke about several things. He also did not want to fill my head with a lot of things because I knew the World Cup was coming and that I was focused on that."
