Bernd Leno has told the German press that he has never regretted leaving Arsenal for Fulham last summer.

The 30 year-old left the Emirates last summer for Craven Cottage and enjoyed a sensational first season with Marco Silva’s side, who made a mockery of the pre-season predictions of relegation by finishing tenth in the Premier League.

Speaking during the build up to Germany’s international friendlies after his superb displays for Whites saw him regain his place in Hansi Flick’s national team squad, Leno told SportBild:

“I quickly found my rhythm again, gained confidence and played well. The way we play is intense. I like the gameplay. I haven’t regretted for a second that I stayed in England and went to Fulham. Fulham used to go to up and down. Now we want to establish ourselves properly [in the Premier League].

In the end, Arsenal didn’t become champions, but regardless of that, I had to look at myself: the Arsenal chapter was just over for me.  I still have a good relationship with some guys, but I’m not crying after the Arsenal chapter, I haven’t missed or regretted anything.”
