Technical director Edu revealed that the players that have been brought in this summer have required the right mentality and not just their ability on the pitch. “I think we’ve added some more players with that kind of character,” Edu told football.london.
“Talk to Gabriel, talk to Zinchenko, talk to Fabio. [Points to head] Here is the win. Ah, Champions League, ok – I accepted that, because I want to be realistic. But here [head], I want to win. A club like Arsenal, at our size, is not building to be fighting for fourth place.
“I’m sorry. We have to [be] realistic, there’s [Manchester] City, Liverpool etc, that’s fine, I accept that. But also, you can not accept that. Here, when you join this club, when you see our size, we cannot accept it.”
