Arsenal left their famous ground in 2006 to move to the Emirates Stadium, and are yet to pick up a trophy since the departure, with some suggesting that a lack of atmosphere in a big stadium can be detrimental to on-field success.

The Spain international expressed the hope that the Blaugrana remain at Camp Nou for the foreseeable future, citing the belief that there was a loss of atmosphere after Arsenal left Highbury for the Emirates during his time in north London.
"Camp Nou is a beast of a stadium," he was quoted as saing by Diari ARA. "I wouldn't want the same thing to happen as with Arsenal. The Emirates is not Highbury.
"Highbury was very tiny, but it had its charm. Emirates is a great stadium, modern, but it's not Highbury."
