Alexandre Lacazette has stated that it’s very crucial for the Gunners’ to finish the 2019/20 campaign with their heads high at Wembley,when they face their rivals Chelsea in the FA Cup final.
The Frenchman believes that the FA Cup final victory over Chelsea would be the best way to redeem themselves.
Arsenal finished their Premier League campaign down in eighth, which marked the club’s worst top-flight performance in 25 years.
Mikel Arteta succeeded Unai Emery, when the latter was sacked in November after a straight seven match winless run.
Arteta has guided the Gunners well and could surely lift up the mood at the Emirates.
The two recent victories over Liverpool and Manchester City have proved that the Spaniard is making progress in the managerial role.
“we know we can save our season” Lacazette aims at FA Cup win
The Gunners can still qualify for the Europa League if they appear triumphant in the FA Cup final, that too for a record-making 14th time.
Ahead of weekend’s final Lacazette said, “We are excited because we know we can save our season with a trophy, which would mean a lot for us and the fans.”
Lacazette added on European football being crucial for Arsenal to attract new players in the summer transfer window: “I came to Arsenal to win trophies. Yes, it’s been really frustrating, but this is part of football.
He further said, “We know Arsenal is the team that has won this cup the most, so even if the fans are not in the stadium we know they will be following us all over the world.
“European football is really important. It’s going to bring money to the club for the future. Players who have a lot of ambitions want to play in Europe and I think it will be easier to sign new players and to keep all the players in the group with the Europa League”, he said.
Arsenal was knocked out of Europa League by Chelsea and the Gunners now look desperate to bag the trophy and redeem themselves when they face Chelsea in the weekend. They are certainly hungry for success after a turbulent 12 months.
The Gunners’ supporters thereby expecting their club to play some top notch football and successfully vanquish their rival.
