Former Inter Milan star and current Palermo striker George Puscas has revealed that he had rejected a move to Arsenal to join Inter Milan in the summer of 2013. (per Calciomercato)
“In Romania, I played in B team in Bihor Oradea, I was 15, I scored two goals in ten games and I went into the Under 17, they made me stay with the bigger ones,” he said to Gazzetta dello Sport
“At 16, Arsenal called me for a trial in London, it went very well. I also did a workout with Wenger. Until that age in England, you live with parents or you go to a family. I was alone, they told me they would wait for a year. In the meantime , Inter wanted me in Milan without even a trail.
“I told Arsenal that I did not want to wait and I came to Italy. Zanetti and Cambiasso were an example, Palacio gave me many tips, I grew up with him. Puskas was a myth for Hungary. I want to become important for Romania, make history.”
