Reports have emerged claiming that Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta has hailed the team spirit amongst the squad.
“There is no question that this squad has the best team spirit and unity I have ever experienced in my career and we cannot wait to get going,” he said in his captain’s notes for the official Arsenal match day programme.
“When you win trophies, it creates something special between the players, staff and fans that you cannot get with anything else. When you start to build that momentum, it’s great and we have to maintain it now.
“For me the most important thing is the energy that I sense around the club. When a club gets into that state, it’s ready to succeed and that’s what we’re trying to do.”
