Arsenal star ‘happy’ he rejected Liverpool

Alexis Sanchez has revealed that he’s thrilled with his decision to reject interest from Liverpool to sign for Arsenal.

The Chile international left Barcelona over the summer as Luis Suarez edged towards the Nou Camp from Anfield after impressing for his side at the World Cup.

Liverpool had highlighted him as the man to replace their departed 31-goal hero, yet Sanchez himself was reluctant to sign for Brendan Rodgers Reds.

The Merseysiders are rumoured to have offered more money than the Gunners for the 26-year-old, yet the Emirates Stadium outfit’s proven Champions League qualification record and life in London swayed his decision.

And Sanchez says that he’s content with his call:

“When you make a decision you have to convince yourself that it’s the best, and it’s impossible to know what could have been if you have made another one,” he told La Tercera.

“So far, and with little time, I’m happy at Arsenal.

“I arrived at a league that I love, my club is fantastic, with a good team mates, a world class coach that worries about the player…all the people are very nice.

“I’m just discovering the city, but it’s very pretty and I’m having a very good time.”
