Grzegorz Krychowiak has admitted that sticking with Sevilla was dependent on coach Unai Emery.
The Poland international midfielder was a target for Arsenal this summer.
“Unai’s decision to stay was crucial for me. I wanted to form part of his project and only his, nobody else’s. If he had left to go to another club it’s probable I would have seriously considered doing the same. Emery is part of my success.
“He believes in me. We are twin souls, we are a perfect fit, our philosophies are very similar. I have only been at Sevilla for a year but I owe a lot to the manager,” Krychowiak told Przeglad Sportowy.
