The players must surely be in agreement with Arteta’s top four finish comments. By Sylvester Kwentua
Arteta said: “For me it is positive when people speak about getting into the top four. It means there is excitement and that people want to push us.
This is just the plain truth! In a big club like Arsenal, winning trophies, especially the EPL, should always be our goal.
I know we have had bad seasons in the past, but the players are starting to rewrite history, and the best way to announce the team, is by winning at the very least, a trophy this season. This is just what the team should be thinking about.
Arteta also spoke about the mentality an Arsenal player should always possess, which is key.
“If you don’t have that mentality (of achieving the biggest targets), you cannot play for this club. The level of expectation always has to be the highest” Arteta asserted.
If as a footballer, you find yourself playing for a big club like Arsenal, then you must play for Arsenal with the mentality of doing great things for the club’s badge you represent.
Enough has been said by Arteta, the players should now rise up and show they are in agreement with their manager’s opinions. Feels so good to be a Gooner right now, ain’t it?
We are Arsenal and proud.
