The Arsenal left-back took time to settle at the Emirates after arriving from Malaga in 2013, and is still linked with a return to Spain with Athletic Bilbao.

“I’ve always said that it’s a different type of football here,” Monreal told Arsenal Player.

“In Spain there is more of a focus on tactics, technique and positioning, whereas in England it is more physical.

“The fans like seeing box-to-box play and lots of direct runs, so I think on a physical level I’ve improved because you have to get used to English football. I’ve certainly got better in that regard.”
