Reports are out claiming that Marc Overmars has spoken of his move to Arsenal.

The former Gunners winger is currently football director of Ajax.

“[When I signed] people were saying, ‘No, he is not good enough, he is not at this level’,” he told Arsenal Player.

“I had a bad surgery on my knee, when you are 22 years old it is quite a tough injury – especially in those days. But for me, there was no doubt. I just needed to recover and be there again.

“I’m very happy Wenger could see past that and see my potential as a player. He saw it, and it was a strength of his to take the gamble. The year after that, I had the best year of my career.

“In that period, we were playing and feeling like we were unbeatable. It was the best period of my life as a football player.”
