Gilberto Wants Highbury Exit High

Gilberto Wants Highbury Exit High

Gilberto Silva thinks Highbury deserves one last title in this it's last season.

As reported on Arsenal.com, there could be as few as 10 games remaining at The Home Of Football, 14 maximum, and Gilberto reckons she deserves one big send off.

“I think everyone will miss the atmosphere here,” said the 29-year-old. “At the beginning of the season we wanted to bring the title back to Highbury especially as it is the last season here. We know it is very difficult but we will keep going until the last opportunity.

“We are not happy with the position we are in at the moment. We want push a little bit more and get higher in the table.”

After the 7-0 stomping of Boro at the weekend, Gilberto reflected on what makes Arsenal so different from any other club and why we are so great.

“When we have everyone available, fit and concentrated like today, it is very difficult to beat Arsenal,” said Gilberto.

“Since I came here, the Club has tried to play the way we did today. If you compare [our game] to other clubs in the Premiership it is completely different. I have never seen any club play the same way we play. This makes a difference.

“Now we want to push on and show everyone who said that Arsenal are not as strong as before. After Patrick’s departure, people said a lot of that. But it’s not true and we showed it today.”
