Finally, Tielemans Reveals Why He Snubbed Arsenal For Monaco (This Will Hurt Many Gunners Fans)

Written by


Youri Tielemans has revealed that the promise of regular first-team football made him choose Monaco over Arsenal.

Tielemans made his debut at Anderlecht at just 16 and is widely considered one of the brightest prospects in the game.

According to him, the chance to shine in Ligue 1 was too good to turn down, regardless of overtures from Arsene Wenger’s side.

“Monaco was just the best step for me. I knew that I could secure a place in the midfield because the vice-president had entrusted me with what he was planning,” the 20-year-old told Het Laatste Nieuws.

“Some outgoing moves were certain, but I couldn’t say that at the time.

“I also wanted to start my preparation with my new team, so that I had time to adjust and prove myself to the coach. At the end of the Belgian league play-offs I was doing something about it – thanks to our big lead, it was almost certain that we would be champions. And by making a quick choice, before travelling with the national team, I could go without worrying about my future,”‎ he said.
