Arsène Wenger says the manner of Arsenal’s FA Cup victory over Hull City made the result even more emotional for him and his players.

The Gunners found themselves 2-0 down after just nine minutes at Wembley, before goals from Santi Cazorla and Laurent Koscielny sent the game into extra time.

Arsène Wenger’s side finally secured the 11th FA Cup in the club’s history when Aaron Ramsey scored in the 109th minute to spark joyous scenes. And the Arsenal manager says the outpouring of emotion on the final whistle came from what had preceded it.

There is no bigger pleasure and happiness than when things looks lost, and you win it again

“There is no bigger pleasure and happiness than when things looks lost, and you win it again,” he told Arsenal Player.

“The only thing is that it shortens your life! But for all the rest there is no bigger happiness.

“We made a demonstration on how not to start a final, and also a demonstration on how to come back. I always said during the season that there is a special togetherness and a special spirit to the side and the players wanted so much to do well.

“I am very pleased, and very proud of them.”
