Former Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez says that the pain of his injury at Arsenal stopped him from enjoying everyday life as well as playing football.

The former Barca man joined Unai Emery’s revolution at the Emirates in the winter of 2019.

He arrived with all the hype of a player from Barcelona.

Unfortunately, over a period of six months, he managed to pull on the Arsenal jersey only six times, in a spell marred by injury.

In an interview with Goal, the player says that the pain was unbearable.

It even affected his everyday life not just his football career.

He said:

“I went to Arsenal with great hopes.”

“I made my debut against Manchester City but in our first away game I got injured.”

The scan showed it was not ruptured, but rather that I had a huge build-up of fluid on my pelvic bone and from there I could not take a single step without feeling pain.”

“I suffered so much at Arsenal that it practically stopped me doing everyday things.”

“It hurts when you sleep when you sneeze and even walking up the stairs.”

Suarez now plays at Celta Vigo and hasn’t missed a single game.

Although the Arsenal fans don’t have such fond memories of his time at the Emirates.
