Mathieu Flamini has admitted that Arsenal’s trophy drought since 2005 could be down to players lacking character when needed.
The French midfielder told the Evening Standard : “What I would say is maybe character. That is important, especially in the English league. I’m someone who gives a lot on the pitch, fight for every ball. I’m a fighter, so I do that naturally,”.
“Everyone is giving more – I really have that sensation. Everyone is committed to each other and that’s important.
“We really want a trophy. Everyone was very focused on the [quarter-final] game against Everton because we all know – you win, you’re through.
“You lose, you’re out, so it’s very simple. I can assure you I will do everything I can to make a difference.”
