London: Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said that his club is going to fight for every competition that they are involved in.
“We’re going to fight for every competition that we’re involved in,” the club’s official website quoted Arteta as saying.
Arteta lifted the FA Cup as Arsenal’s captain in 2014. The club is scheduled to take on Bournemouth in the FA Cup on January 28.
“I know what it means to this club to win that competition and we need to get back winning. We need to get back to being up there and having everybody talking about us. We need every competition to try and do that,” Arteta said.
Arteta also expressed happiness with the support they have got from the fans.
“I think that one of the important things is creating that connection again with the fans. It’s a long time ago, and these people have been here for a long time, [since we have] seen the fans react and support the team how they did against Chelsea. It was incredible and in some stages it was like we were playing at home,” he said.
“The amount of support they gave was incredible in difficult circumstances and I’m so proud that they’re feeling a little bit closer to the team now,” Arteta added.
