Coquelin: I Regret Staying 'Longer' At Arsenal

Francis Coquelin says that he "almost regrets" not taking the chance to leave Arsenal sooner after completing a move to La Liga side Valencia on Thursday.
Coquelin completed a move away from the Gunners on Thursday and admitted during a press conference that it might have been the wrong decision to stay with Arsenal at the start of the season.
"It's true that there was interest in the summer but in my head I wanted to continue at Arsenal and do well there," Coquelin said.

"It wasn't to be and now this opportunity has come up.

 "I almost regret not having come before. I think it's an excellent opportunity for me and I'm very grateful. It's a big challenge, and a new start in my life for me, which I'm very excited about."
The Frenchman, who signed a new deal with the English Premier League club just last year, has now inked a contract with the Spanish side that runs through 2022.
