If you are Cesc, going to Barcelona, he will make more money, more sponsorship, and he is going home. What did Arsenal do to keep him at the club? Absolutely nothing. Now the fans say he is not loyal. When you leave Arsenal, you become a traitor, regardless of what you have done.

When Pep was at Barcelona, I was so young, 16 or 17 years old. I went to training a lot, and Pep Guardiola told me a lot of things, but I didn’t stay in the first team. He is an amazing coach, and if he comes to the Premier League, I think he will win a lot of titles.

Barcelona, Real Madrid, City – there are many teams you’d want to play against.
I always remember sitting with my son, Anthony, at Arsenal one night and watching Barcelona during the warm-up.

In Barcelona, things seem so different. For example, I know that it’s traditionally the least Spanish city, but you’d never know they had a monarchy, coming here as a tourist – as opposed to the U.K., where the Queen is probably the best-known animal, vegetable and/or mineral going when it comes to overseas visitors.
Barcelona or Real Madrid, I think I would say yes to playing for these teams.
