Obviously, the more you know about the team you are coaching, the more you know the team Where can I improve. We believe that Thomas has the qualities suitable for Arsenal, his character and personality, as well as his technical level and he can help the team in the right position."

So we must believe in With such a huge lineup, everyone must be ready to play for Arsenal at any time."

I don’t know, I can talk about ourselves (Arsenal), why we want to do (these transfer moves), and what we can do. But in general, I am against Arsenal. Na’s actions this summer are very satisfied."
