Nacer Barazite felt he was not given the opportunity
Former Arsenal man Nacer Barazite has hit out at the club, claiming that he did not receive a fair chance at the club.
The Dutchman failed to make a single first team appearance and left the club in January 2011.
“To be honest I do believe I wasn’t given a fair chance to break through into the first team,” he said. “Because I made my debut in the Carling Cup and then two weeks later I got a chance to play against Blackburn in the quarter finals where I did quite well but I got an injury in that game.
“And after that I wasn’t given proper opportunities which other young players did get, who I believe did not perform as well as I did, for example, when I went on loan to Derby County.
“So if the question is ‘do I believe I got an honest chance?’, then I would say I do not believe I got an honest chance but that’s football – sometimes you don’t get there and you have to move on.”
