Arsenal star insists that the club have enough big personalities to succeed this season

The player is determined to return the club to the Champions League

Arsenal had a very busy summer as Unai Emery was appointed as the new manager of the club after Arsene Wenger decided to leave the club after 22 years. The Spaniard signed a three-year deal worth £15 million.

He was given the charge with the task of rebuilding the squad and returning the club to the European elite while challenging for other major honours, after they finished sixth in the Premier League last season resulting in missing the Champions League this season.

However, the Gunners didn’t got off to a great start as they have begun life under the new manager with back-to-back defeats against their big rivals Chelsea and Manchester City. But won their next three fixtures against West Ham United, Cardiff City and Newcastle United.

It has been suggested that the London Outfit will need some time to compete for silverware and will also struggle to finish in the top 4 this season.

However, Stephan Lichtsteiner insisted that the club has enough big personalities to succeed this season and is determined to help the club to return to the Champions League football.

The right-back was the club’s first signing this summer under Emery and was expected to bring a winning mentality to the dressing room.

“I’ve already seen good personalities in this team. I don’t see that, what they wrote or what they said,” Lichtsteiner said as quoted by The Telegraph. “I think of course if you have experienced players in the team, it’s good for young players who can use you as an example of how to work.

“I don’t feel that there’s not a big personality in this team. I see a very good team with a lot of quality, a lot of good players and characters. I don’t see a problem.”
