He continued, “We must be able to develop the team, develop our players, improve all departments, create more communication with our fans, while improving the atmosphere at the Emirates Stadium, and be able to attract the most prominent talents and best people to this club in order to lead the project to higher levels.”
Arsenal hosts Lead United team on Sunday, before visiting Tottenham Hotspur, fifth, in an exciting and decisive match to participate in the Champions League.
And then Arsenal concludes his campaign in the season with matches against Newcastle and Everton.
