Demba Ba has revealed he still regrets the day that he was unable to complete a move to Arsenal.
“I think back to the day when Jose Mourinho blocked my Chelsea loan at Arsenal,” Ba told France Football.
“It was the time of his return to the club, and I think it would have been a very good move. It happened on the last day of the transfer window.”I was in Paris, at rest, and Arsenal representatives called me to tell me it was going to happen.
“I then came back to London for the medical. Upon arriving, I was left surprised that Mr Mourinho had blocked my move to Arsenal. Mesut Ozil arrived, and to strengthen a competitor like Arsenal was very complicated if it worked.”
