Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos comes out and tells Arsenal ‘I Am No Coward’
Dani Ceballos claims he stayed at Arsenal to repay their faith and prove he is no “coward” – as he revealed his pride at fans having their own song for him.
After months and month and months of transfer speculation during the summer transfer window, the Gunners finally managed to finalise a try-before-they officially buy deal for the Spaniard, as Emery was desperate to add another midfielder to the side after Aaron Ramsey departed the club.
The Spaniard made an immediate impact on the Gunners side and got many fans excited about his ability on the ball, especially as they have been crying out for a player like him since Cesc Fabregas left the club.
But reports have emerged saying Ceballos wants to return to parent club Real Madrid as he was frustrated by the lack of game time over the last few weeks after failing to break back into the ARSENAL side after picking up an injury
The on-loan Spain midfielder hinted at an early return to Real Madrid last month with a cryptic Instagram post – but now insists he will become an “important” Gunners’ player after shaking off injuries.
Ceballos told Spain’s Marca newspaper: “Arsenal bet on me and I can’t let them down.”
The 23-year-old is particularly keen to shine to help him secure a spot at Euro 2020, and despite failing to earn a regular Gunners’ place so far, as well as seeing his main admirer Unai Emery depart, he claimed Mikel Arteta is perfect for the boss job.
With Arsenal tenth, Ceballos said: “Yes, it is true that he has arrived in a difficult situation but mentally he is a coach I think Arsenal needs right now.
“Since I came back I have been working with him just two weeks and now is when I have to show him that I am fit to play in Arsenal. After the break I will be important.”
