Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez says he joined the perfect club in Arsenal, as he prepares for an FA Cup final appearance at Wembley on Saturday.
The former Barcelona and Udinese frontman has been a massive hit since his arrival from Spain last summer, scoring 24 goals in all competitions as the Gunners finished in third place in the Premier League and also made it through to the FA Cup final for the second year in a row.
I thought that Arsenal was the perfect club for me, the perfect club to win titles and compete in every competition.
And Sanchez, 26, is delighted with the way he has settled in English football and is hoping to finish the campaign on a high.
He told BT Sport: “The reason why I moved to Arsenal is because there were a group of young players with the ambition to achieve things.
“I thought that Arsenal was the perfect club for me, the perfect club to win titles and compete in every competition.
“There is a joyful atmosphere in the dressing room. Arsenal is a magnificent club and I hope to win many titles here. I’m going to do my very best to help the club achieve success.”
Arsenal are 1.30 to lift the FA Cup on Saturday, with opponents Aston Villa 3.75, while Sanchez can be backed at 2.62 to score at any time at Wembley.
Meanwhile, Sanchez says he is well aware of the history of the FA Cup, which Arsenal have won on a joint record 11 occasions.
He added: “The FA Cup is a competition with amazing history.
“Today we watched a video about Arsenal’s previous wins and thanks to the clips I trained with even more motivation. I hope we can win the cup so the Arsenal supporters are happy.”
