Flamini targets silverware for Arsenal

Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini is targeting silverware for his club as they look to end their eight year trophy drought, according to Sky Sports.

The Gunners last piece of silverware under manager Arsene Wenger came in 2005 when they won the FA Cup, and they are favourites to win the competition this year.


The 30-year-old admitted that it is a lack of character that is causing the London side’s trophy struggles.


"What I would say is maybe character. That is important, especially in the English league. I'm someone who gives a lot on the pitch, fight for every ball. I'm a fighter, so I do that naturally," said Flamini.


"Everyone is giving more - I really have that sensation. Everyone is committed to each other and that's important.


"We really want a trophy. Everyone was very focused on the [quarter-final] game against Everton because we all know - you win, you're through.


"You lose, you're out, so it's very simple. I can assure you I will do everything I can to make a difference."


The Frenchman also admitted that he thought the club selling their top players was an issue that reflected their trophy success.


Flamini left the club in 2008 before rejoining earlier this season, but recent seasons have seen top stars such as Van Persie, Nasri and Cesc Fabregas all leave the club and go on to win silverware.


"Why do top players leave? It's a good question," added the midfielder.


"That might be a question to ask the coach or the management but I agree with you, when you are a top club you want to keep your top players."
