Mathieu Flamini believes Arsenal can build on victory in the Community Shield by launching a sustained challenge for the Premier League title, according to Sky Sports.

The Gunners on Sunday dispatched champions Manchester City in the Wembley showpiece, goals from Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud sealing the silverware for Arsene Wenger’s side.


Speaking after the match, Flamini said the morale boost of lifting the first trophy of the season will help Arsenal go into the new campaign in good style. “It is very good for the confidence but now we have to start the season. We have to be very focused and ready because it is going to be a long [season],” he said.


“It is important not to forget the season is a marathon, it is not a sprint, so it will be a long one like all the time and we will make sure to be ready,” Flamini continued. “We had a good year last year, even if we collapsed in the last couple of months, but I think we are ready. We have a strong team with a lot of quality.


“We are part of the big teams and I think we have the quality to fight for the title definitely. Now we are ready, with a strong team that has a lot of quality to be able to fight to the end,” the former Milan player added. “As you say here in England we must not forget that it is a marathon and not a sprint, so we have to make sure that we keep going until the end.


“But to win another title after the FA Cup is obviously very positive for us and shows that we are going in the right way. We have shown that we are very strong, now we have to be ready for the next game,” he concluded.


Flamini is in his second spell under Wenger, having originally moved to London from Marseille in 2004. He spent four years at Arsenal before moving to Milan, playing five years at San Siro before last summer returning to the Premier League.

Flamini is a player with confidence but he should not talk much like a supporter. He should concetrate on playing football not to be a spokes person.
