Gael Clichy believes Premier League title justifies exit from the Gunners
Manchester City full back Gael Clichy believes joining the Premier League champions from Arsenal last summer was a turning point in his career and he has no regrets about quitting the Emirates for the Etihad.
The 26-year-old spent eight years with Arsene Wenger’s side and did not win any silverware since an FA Cup triumph in 2005.
“It’s funny, but I am a vastly different player this year since I moved to City,” Clichy told Sky Sports News. “In my head, it is a turning point in my career. I wanted to see where it could take me. I do not regret it for a moment, as I have gained in self-confidence.
“It has been 10 years that I have played in the Premier League, which is not bad.
“I am champion of England and that is important in the life of a player. One feels stronger.”
