Why I left Arsenal – Ajayi

Rotherham United defender, Semi Ajayi has revealed why he left Arsenal after spending two years at the London club.

Ajayi told Sky Sports that even though his time at Arsenal was great, he needed to find a club where he’ll get more playing time.

“I learned a lot, especially at Arsenal,” Ajayi said.

“I feel like my game came along in leaps and bounds and I was around world-class players, training with them day in, day out. I had great coaches and great facilities and I was just a sponge when I was there, soaking in all of the information that I could and trying to improve as much as I could.

“I left because I got to the stage where I did want to try and get some first-team games under my belt, but by no means would I say that the two years I spent there were unsuccessful to me because I developed a huge amount in that time.”

Since transferring to Rotherham United in 2017, the Nigerian has featured for the club 77 times scoring 11 goals.
