March 7th, Fulham goalkeeper Leno accepted an interview with the media about Arsenal, the German national team, etc.
Topic has an opinion.
Impressions of Arsenal
I have no negative impressions of Arsenal, the way my career ended wasn’t perfect, but I was treated well at the Emirates Stadium.
Some fans said to me ‘thank you for your dedication over the past four years, you are very good’.
I’m happy with my performance, although they dropped me, I didn’t make any mistakes.
I came here with my head held high and I left with my head held high, I am still connected to the club.
Reasons for joining Fulham
It is clear that I want to stay in the Premier League, which is the best league in the world, and I really like living in London.
I’ve spoken to my teammates at Arsenal that I want to go to Fulham, they told me it’s a good club, I’ve played against Fulham a few times, they have an old stadium, all of the above (during the transfer
) played a role.
On Fulham’s performance this season
The initial objective was to avoid relegation and now we are in the FA Cup quarter-finals and seventh in the league, a result no one could have predicted.
I was in as good shape as the team, and at first most of the games you felt like you were underdogs, which was different than at Arsenal, where you always had to win and there was a lot of pressure.
This season, we have given everything back to the fans. The expectations of Arsenal and Fulham fans are different, but at this moment, Fulham fans are heating up their dreams.
I feel at home here.
On whether Arsenal can win the Premier League
I hope they can do it, I think they are capable of it.
About the absence from the World Cup
I didn’t go to the World Cup because I left Arsenal and the World Cup was in November and I can accept that.
But I hope in March, in the summer or next season I can be back with the national team, that is my goal.
