I never liked Arsenal, I wished I could leave – Arsenal Signee
Unai Emery, who was in charge of Arsenal at the time, moved Dani Ceballos to the Emirates. Ceballos says in his confession that he never really felt at home at Arsenal and that he longed to go back to Spain, where he was born and raised.
Real Madrid back Dani Ceballos has said that he wanted to leave Arsenal soon after joining them on loan under Unai Emery.
Ceballos signed a transfer deal with Arsenal in the summer of 2019, when Emery was still in charge of coaching the team. After just one game, the Spaniard was compared to Santi Cazorla because of how well he played in his first game against Burnley at home. Few Arsenal fans will never forget how amazing the Spaniard was in his first game.
Ceballos, on the other hand, had never been able to reach those heights during his time in north London. Even though he says that some parts of his time as a Gunner were good, he has since admitted that he never really fit in at Arsenal and that he wanted to go back to Spain almost right away.
According to AS, the defender said this while he was on Universo Valdano. He said that Unai Emery called him and asked him to come to Arsenal. When he was in his second year at Arsenal, he came to my house and told me I was the best player for the project he was working on.
“When I saw how fast the competition was going, the first thing I thought was, “I want to go back to Spain. How long until I can come back?
“It’s a tough battle, and it was hard for me to get into the routine. But in the long run, it will make you a better rival. The group has a lot of strength. I’m sure that my time there had a big effect on how my work has grown since then.
Emery left his job as boss of Arsenal just four months after Ceballos made his start, so the athlete only had a short time to work with him. After Emery was fired, Mikel Arteta took over Ceballos’s job right away.
These new comments are so shocking because Ceballos seemed to get along well with Arteta and was a key part of Arsenal’s FA Cup win in 2020 while he worked for Arteta.
A month after winning the FA Cup, Arteta gave Ceballos a second loan season. This made it clear that he thought of Ceballos as a player after the 2019–20 season.

He went back to the Santiago Bernabeu even though he wasn’t playing well, but not before he stood up for Arteta when everyone else was criticizing him.
In an interview with El Larguero, he said, “Arteta is a coach who I am sure will be one of the best in the world in the next few years, but I would like to go back to the Spanish league.”
After he left Arsenal, Ceballos played for Real Madrid, where he won the Champions League. So far this season, he has made 18 league starts for Los Blancos. He is also having a bigger role for the team now.
