In an interview with L’Equipe, Alexandre Lacazette confirms his desire to stay with the Gunners.
Vincent Duluc, who conducted this interview, asks Lacazette if this is a final decision? “From me, yes” answers the Gunners player.
And the Lyon striker did not appreciate his name circulating for an exchange with Thomas Partey at the Atlético de Madrid: “If it’s true, no, it’s not fun. But what is important is the choice of coach (Mikel Arteta, editor’s note), his self-confidence. He’s making the team, not the managers upstairs in the offices, and I know I have his confidence. “
Alexandre Lacazette also explains that if he did not participate in the Community Shield, it is not due to a possible transfer or setting on the bench by Arteta but due to coronavirus: “I was for two weeks. I was in Guadeloupe when England announced the new two-week conditions, and I did not have time to return. I arrived in France on Sunday, I went through Paris and I was in London at the beginning of the week, but I had to do my two weeks, like everyone else. “
