I think you have to give credit to the team because we managed to come together and go back to the basics.

The meeting was about trying to listen to different opinions, different ideas and different feelings, and I think we found a way to try to change a bit.“It’s not that easy because one meeting is not going to change a lot, especially not during the season when you’re playing every three days, but it was important to speak our opinions out loud. Overall it was about giving 110 per cent to try to get out of it, and I think we managed it well.”Since the meeting, Arsenal have enjoyed an upsurge in form and have now won their past three matches. This included the defeat of AC Milan to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League and they will now turn their focus to their league game against Stoke City on Sunday.last_img read more
