The Gunners are going to maintain their style on and off the pitch
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has promised to maintain his football philosophy as he nears his 17th year at the club.
The Gunners have become famous for their style of football over the years but would have failed to make the top four had it not been for wantaway captain Robin van Persie.
“We work very hard to make the team stronger. In this job, when you have consistency in your attitude you can stay at a certain level,” the French coach said.
“The most difficult thing is to be consistent and we have shown over the last 15 years that we can maintain that consistency.
“I am confident that we have to be faithful to what we believe is right in football and in the game - the way we play football.”
The Gunners have qualified for the Champions League for the past 15 years but have not won a trophy in seven.
“We are now 15 years on the trot in the Champions League and I believe that shows that our [business] model works,” said Wenger.
“On the other hand we are very ambitious, we want as well to win trophies.
“It’s not enough just to be in the Champions League and we are focused on that of course.”
