Lucas Perez has heaped praise on Arsenal as he recovers from an ankle injury that’s going to keep him sidelined until well into December.
The Spanish striker joined towards the end of the transfer window for £17m, and says that everything the club does is designed to help the players improve.
Although he hadn’t worked his way into the starting XI on a regular basis, he made a fine contribution with two goals and three assists from just six appearances (3 starts, 3 as sub).
Speaking to Marca, he said, “The Arsenal surprises me every day because of the treatment you get, the desire to have the player as comfortable and at ease possible. You just have to dedicate yourself to training.
“It’s a marvel of club.”
He also had nice words for Arsene Wenger, saying, “He works with you very closely, he helps you to be a better footballer, and although he looks quite serious, he’s a great person and a great coach.
“People respect and love him a lot.”
The 28 year old believes that the Gunners have the squad to cope with his injury and any other problems, more so than in previous years.
“I think there’s a great squad, last year they had that as well, but I think this season there are more options on the bench, more players to be able to rotate.”
Perez is posting videos of his recuperation while at former club Deportivo. It looks like it’s slow going at the moment, but fingers crossed he’s back soon.
