I left Arsenal to play in Champions League – Tavares

Arsenal defender, Nuno Tavares, has hit out at the club for refusing to include a purchase option in the transfer that saw him join Marseille on loan this summer.

The 22-year-old has now admitted he wants to join the Ligue 1 side on a permanent basis.

According to him, Marseille has given him the opportunity to play in his preferred position and also in the Champions League.

“I came to Marseille to finally be able to play in my position. When signing with OM, I wanted to have an option to buy, but Arsenal refused,” Tavares told RMC Sport.

“Now I’m at OM, and with or without an option, I’m happy.

“At Arsenal, I would have probably only played in the cup. I came to Marseille to play in my position, in the Champions League, in the league and in the cup.”
