Speaking to the great Arsenal Ian Wright about his departure from the club, Oxlade-Chamberlain said: “I wouldn’t say I wanted to leave Arsenal because I didn’t think we could win.

“I thought, ‘I have to take the risk, I have to take the chance. I don’t want to look back at the end and I don’t think I tried. “
