'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mertesacker Still Adjusting

Per Mertesacker has admitted that he is still having communication problems since his move to London, but he also believes our slow start to the season should've been expected.

Speaking to the German Football Association website, www.dfb.de, the centre half said it was obvious that Wenger's new look team would take a while to gel, but he's confident the boss can and will turn things around over the next few weeks.

'I've only been gone a month from Germany. I have not yet properly acclimatised. We have many new players, but I feel that we have integrated very quickly. I still have communication problems but that is inevitable, but it is clear that mistakes happen. They are almost inevitable in a team which has not yet gelled.'

On Wenger, he added.

'For the Arsenal fans Wenger is a hero and he cannot lose this status. There is no one here who is not certain that the success will return. We have a talented team with a lot of potential, and it's only a matter of time before that comes to the surface.'

On the basis of that, it's inevitable we'll improve then.
