I lost interest in football while at Arsenal - Theo Walcot

In a candid interview with Alex Scott, Everton's Theo Walcott admitted he fell out of love with football while he was at Arsenal.
Walcott moved to Everton in the January transfer window after 12 years at Arsenal, where he scored 108 goals in 397 appearances. The 29-year-old felt that towards the end of his time at the Emirates he was coming in and out of the side too often, and says his move to Everton has given him back the excitement for football.

He said "I'm not going to lie, I fell out of love with football for a little bit. Because I had some good performances, but then just didn't get the chance to play on. Scoring over 100 goals for Arsenal is a great achievement for me personally, and then just the last year-and-a-half was tough, I can't lie. It was really tough, not being able to get into the team, being in and out. I just felt I wanted to get the excitement of football again. I didn't feel like it was going to be at Arsenal then. Sam at the time got in contact, and I felt "yeah, this is the right move for me. I got the buzz and enjoyment back, and I couldn't be in a happier place to be honest, I'm playing football with a smile on my face. I just love football again."
