Arsene Wenger praised his side’s fighting spirit and suggested that there was better to come from his side, after they defeated Hull City in the FA Cup final, 3-2 after extra time.
Aaron Ramsey capped a fine season by scoring the winning goal in the final minute of extra-time, as the Gunners ended their nine year spell without a trophy.
Two early goals for Hull City, coming from James Chester and Curtis Davies had given the Tigers an early lead, halved when Santi Cazorla converted a free-kick after 17 minutes. However Wenger’s side went in at the break looking lackluster at Wembley Stadium, and a goal down.
It was left to Ramsey, who has 10 league goals to his name this term, to get the winner and avoid a penalty shootout.
Wenger saw the positives from the result, and had praise for the team spirit, telling ITV:
“It would have been terrible, but we came back. I’ve praised the spirit of this team and I’m very proud of that today. Congratulations to Hull, they played very well.”
