AW Reflects As He Looks To Next Year

AW Reflects As He Looks To Next Year

Arsene Wenger can't wait for next season to start, so Arsenal can start challenging for the Premiership.

This season has been a big disapointment for Arsenal, exiting the Champions League and FA Cup early, while they will battle it out for third place in the Premiership on Sunday.

Wenger is determined to have a better season next year, and can't wait to get going.

'We want to finish as quickly as possible and start again,' said Wenger

'I would be happy if you said to me tomorrow we start again straight away, cut out the holidays and let's go for it again, because it will be a long summer.

'But we have to adapt and use this period to go away and reflect on what has happened this year, make the right assessment and start again in a very efficient way.

'We have adapted now to the new stadium, we have learned, and hopefully we will recover our injured players in the summer and start well.'


After talking about having a time of reflection, Wenger seemed to have done his own already. He has identified Arsenal's problem already and will surely spend the next few months trying to sort them out.

He said: 'Our conversion rate is not the best in the league. It is mid-table. Our aggressiveness is a little bit lower than the others.

'On the other hand, we have shown qualities that nobody else has shown. We are the only team that has scored 21 goals in the last 15 minutes.

'We have a mental strength and a technical quality that can really be predominant.'


Wenger continued: 'If you make a table of the top four in the Premiership, we are top. If you make a table of the top 10 we are second, three points behind Manchester United.

'If you make a table of the top 20, we are 22 points behind the leader.

'It means we have lost the points against the second part of the table. That shows that we have to progress and improve in some areas. But, as well as that, we have the potential to fight for the championship.'
