Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has called upon his teammates to improve their consistency if the Gunners are to challenge for trophies next season, reports Sky
Cazorla, 28, has netted 12 league goals in 35 matches this season since his £16.5m move from Malaga in the Summer, but blames the early season form for Arsenal’s current 4th place position, and the ongoing fight with Chelsea and Tottenham for a Champions League place.
“The aim is to win trophies. Unfortunately Arsenal has gone eight years without a trophy, which is a long time for such a huge club that’s always up there fighting with the other big clubs.
“This year we haven’t been able to, for various reasons. I hope next year will be another story. This year we haven’t been able to, for various reasons. I hope next year will be another story.”
The Gunners made an FA Cup exit to Blackburn Rovers, while Bayern Munich knocked them out of the Champions League.
“As a team we weren’t very consistent for half of the season, which cost us in terms of reaching the higher positions in the league. “Now we’re a lot more consistent and that’s the form we were lacking before – being consistent and getting the three points whenever we could.”
In the race for Champions League football, Arsenal next face relegated Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, and have Wigan Athletic and Newcastle in their final two games of the season.
