Why I snubbed Arsenal for AC Milan

Swedish superkid Emil Roback has revealed that he snubbed a move to the English Premier League to join Arsenal despite the fact that his Hammarby club already accepted the Gunners’ offer.

Emil Roback has been attracting a lot of interest from European clubs with Arsenal already in talks with his team but he opted to join the Italian Serie A giants AC Milan last month.

The youngster claimed he decided to snub the North London club because of his meeting with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

According to Emil Roback, he visited AC Milan and had talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, hinting that the discussion gave him the guarantee of success in Italy. He was told it would be a difficult start but things will get better.

Emil Roback stated that Zlatan Ibrahimovic knows his experience because he went through the same as a kid and he is confident that he would be helped by the football legend if he stays with Inter Milan.

The youngster has already had his first training session with AC Milan and it has proven to be very positive as he claimed to be confident and has the backing of the club manager to succeed with the first-team in the coming season.
