My Philosophy

THREE KEY PILLARS

WINNING MENTALITY

Always go for the win, even if you don’t manage to get it in the end. That mentality is important in football and all other walks of life.

You must show desire to overcome obstacles and keep fighting to achieve your goal, that’s The Arsenal Way.

HARD WORK AND DEDICATION

Effort and dedication are always more important than just talent alone. It is with attitude that you can achieve aptitude.

We must work harder today than we did yesterday if we want to move forward.

THE TEAM COMES FIRST

As Alfredo di Stéfano once said, no player is as good as all the players together. “We” should be bigger than “Me”, We Are The Arsenal.

That’s how I understand the Arsenal motto “Victoria Concordia Crescit”.

Steps to Success

Amaze the opposition with your approach to the game. Taking the initiative can be key to the outcome of the match.

Be clear about what you want. The players can’t have any doubts as to how we want to play, they can’t go out onto the pitch with uncertainty in their minds.

Create a positive mental attitude. A positive attitude is crucial for the team and their ability to carry out the game plan.

Don’t take your eye off the ball. You have to foresee all potential problems both in the dressing room and on the pitch.

Evaluate before acting. Apply consequential thinking and take the right decisions at the right time.
