Catch up with more reaction from Arsenal's Community Shield win over Manchester City.
"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 first game in the championship.
"Of course this will be good for the confidence to start the season, but we have to be focused because the season will be a long one. 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.
"We have signed a few really good players, and that is excellent for us, because we have added a lot of quality to the team. We were already strong last season, but now we have added even more.
"Last season was good for us, even though we did collapse [in the league] over a couple of months. Now we are ready, with a strong team that has a lot of quality to be able to fight to the end."Copyright 2014 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
