Arsene Wenger has admitted that it is hurting to see other teams win titles while Arsenal continue their trophy-less campaign.
The Gunners will face Swansea tomorrow for the FA Cup third-round tie, and they will be trying to keep the hopes of their fans alive by remaining in the competition. Arsenal have also qualified for the knock-out stages of the Champions League.
“Of course it bothers me, because I am not here to watch other people win trophies,” said Wenger, who helped Arsenal win the FA cup in 2005. “It is important and I will give my best to win on Sunday. I will just remind you that I have won the FA Cup four times. Of course that [drought] is not pleasant, but the only way to do it is to win.”
Also, Arsene said that it would be immature to tlk about reaching the Wembley at this level, especially when his side will face Swansea.
He said: “It is the first round [we will participate]. You cannot speak about winning a trophy, so for us it is important to show continuity and consistency, and the FA Cup is part of that.
“To get people to believe more in the team, it is important that we win on Sunday. It is an important moment of the season for us, to strengthen the confidence of the team. We feel we are on a good run, but how far can we go? To win in the FA Cup will strengthen [our belief].”
