Former Barcelona player Alex Song has confirmed that he left Arsenal and joined the Catalan team to become a millionaire and that he was not interested in playing.
“I spent 8 years at Arsenal, but until the past four years, I couldn’t say I had started living well,” Song said in an Instagram video.
He added: “I wasted a lot of money. I used to go to expensive dinners, trips, and vacations. During those eight years, I couldn’t even keep £ 100,000 on my Bank account.”
“I thought I was a millionaire, but that was not true. I was making £ 15,000 a week,” said Song.
And I added: “I signed my first professional contract, and I was very excited. I came to training and saw Henry arriving in his car, and I thought I needed the same car, whatever the cost. ”
He continued: “Since I have been a footballer, I could only go to the agency, sign papers and give them the car, so I ended up buying a car like Henry’s, after two months I understood that my money would run out and I asked for another car instead. ”
On his move to Barcelona and the criticism that affected the Catalan team for signing with him, Song confirmed that he did not care about this, explaining: “Barcelona was interested in signing with me and their sports director talked to me and told me that I will not play football a lot there, I told him that I do not care, I knew that now I will become a millionaire for that I signed the contract with them! “.
