"I think that Arteta coming in a good thing,He is a great player.Since he has been here (at the Emirates), he has been giving me some advice on how to defend and play better. I think it is good to have more Spanish players in the team."
I don't think that England are going to miss me anyway. I am not someone to back down on his words and did not want to let the people of Ghana down.I made a pledge four years ago that if I ever made it into the Arsenal team, I would choose Ghana.
It is a big opportunity for me and my family and I think it is the right time for me to take it. It is a big challenge, a different challenge, fresh for me and I want to see myself on the biggest stage, the Champions League.I am 29 years old so I haven’t got much time left to take a chance like this one.I think I have done my best for Everton. I always try hard, I have been as professional as I could and I was grateful for the support and the love that the club and the fans showed me.It is very difficult to say goodbye. Obviously I am never going to forget what I have done here and what the people and this club have done for me.
