During a direct Instagram, the Cameroon said he agreed to leave Arsenal to sign for FC Barcelona for the sole purpose of becoming rich.
“I knew I was going to be a millionaire”
In fact, Alexandre Song gave up on the subject during a live Instagram with Pascal Siakam, player of the Toronto Raptors (NBA). And the least we can say is that his statements have the merit of being honest, Douala natives have admitted to agreeing to sign on Barça just to get rich.
“When FC Barcelona offered me a contract and I saw how much I would earn, I didn’t think twice about it. I thought my wife and kids should have a comfortable life. I met the sports director and he said I would not play many games , but I didn’t care, I knew I was going to be a millionaire “said Alexander Song and also revealed that he lived beyond his means while staying with the Gunners.
“I would train and saw Thierry Henry arrive in a magnificent car. I told myself I wanted the same car at all costs. I went to the dealer and bought the same. But I had to return it after two months because all my money was spent on gasoline “, he said. It is no secret that money dominates modern football, and therefore some careers are motivated by greed.
