He did say at the end though that as the years go by he will adapt

Conveniently missed out

"I don’t know if there’s a lot of things that I’m enjoying because I think I liked living in Italy more.

London is a completely different world. England is a very big country.

I had trouble with the language, communicating with my teammates and with the people.

It’s pretty rough in certain moments when you can’t have the dialogue, that’s the most important part.

The weather is also difficult. You go out in the morning and it’s cloudy and you get back after training and it’s still cloudy.

I miss the sun. Mostly us South Americans are used to having sunny days"



I am sure your or whomever you copied that interview translation intentionally decided to skip the questions asked and the full answers he gave.
Especially when Torreira added that he thinks he will get used to it in the coming years.

You're so right, sneaky journalist missed off the last line - But I think I’ll get used to it as the years go by. - found the full quote on Football London ... puts a bit of a different spin when you see it in full ... what question was he asked? can't find that ....

Apparently him and Emery don’t see eye to eye. Was a Sven signing and Emery was pissed that the club opted to sign him rather than Nzonzi or Banega

Agreed

It has promise for what? We cannot honestly expect to go anywhere with Xhaka next to anyone, the guy is not good enough.

Was piss poor during the 2nd part of the season, like being a player light.

Whilst he's bluffing, the worrying part is that Unai is known for this.

Worth considering but only for double what we paid for him or for how much he wants to leave.

We can buy DM's, they're not that hard to find or too expensive.

First season in the Prem for a combative CM. These kinds tend to struggle in their first season. Least of our worries. Pound-for-pound, Torreira's arguably the best player at Arsenal currently.

No, no.

We're already becoming the new Everton. I wouldn't accelerate the process.

His dropoff towards the end was expected. The whole team turned to shit, so to expect a no-name player from Sampdoria to miraculously rise above was always going to be a big ask.
