Srna has spent the past 11 years with Shakhtar but he claims there was an opportunity for his career to take a different path at one of Europe's two clubs.

The Croatian, 31, says he received offers from Chelsea and Bayern but was so committed to Shakhtar that he did not want to leave.

He also put the interest of his family first, and remains adamant that he was right to stay at Shakhtar.

"It is true, I had two concrete offers but I listened to my heart and remained at the club with whom I grew up for 11 years," he told Novosti

"If I moved, I would get more money, but as I said, it was a decision which was written in my heart.

"At the end I also did that because of my family which wanted to stay."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
