Dani Ceballos on the reason he joined Arsenal: 'The confidence of the coach is key to giving your best'
- Dani tells the story of how he was convinced to join Arsenal.
- Unai Emery came over and reiterated the Spaniard will have an important role to play in the team.
- And Dani insists that was why he made the switch to North London.
The midfielder says Emery was the main reason he joined, stressing the belief of the head coach cannot be underestimated.
"Unai was key to me being at Arsenal. I went to play at a club like Arsenal because, apart from the fact that it's a massive club, Unai practically came to my house to tell me that he loved me as a player, that he's been in love with me since I played for Betis," he told Marca.
"The confidence of a coach is key to giving your best performance. Unai told me that I would be important with him at Arsenal and I didn't have any doubts about going there."
Injury and change of manager didn't help Ceballos properly establish himself. However, with the player saying he'll be important after the break (and the future is now), we do hope Dani will be involved more in the coming weeks.
He has generally impressed when called upon this season and has qualities none of our midfielders can really offer (with the exception of Mesut Ozil).
