The Arsenal players know where it all went wrong!
How many times have you heard someone say, “if the fans can see the problems, why can’t the players?”
It’s a common cause for concern as fans continue to wonder why the players do not see the same issues we do.
However that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, as Arsenal and French international defender Laurent Koscielny has spoken out about Arsenal’s issues last season.
Koscielny admitted that despite Arsenal’s strong finishing position in the league, overall the squad was quite disappointed from the outcome of the season. Koscielny told a report by the Metro,
“Yes it’s a disappointment. We finished second, but if you look at the whole season, we can have regrets. I think this year we had the means to compete with the other teams to win this title. But our results were inconsistent, especially in February and March, when we won very few games, and we took very few points.
“It was tough, but we have to keep the positive from this season to learn from it, and start a nice season next year, with probably some new players that will allow us to reach another level and have more consistent results.”
Although Koscielny and co may have been disappointed with the outcome of the season, at least they recognise what went wrong over the course of the year. It’s important for the players to reflect from previous experiences, as well as the boss, in order to improve for next season.
With the addition of some new players and the understanding of what areas the players should focus on improving, we can only be hopeful as fans, that next season Arsenal manage to achieve a little more than they did in last years campaign.
They will. As long as Wenger gets “some new players that will allow us to reach another level.”
