Mikel Areta has revealed his blueprint for success at Arsenal.
Sitting down for his first interview with Arsenal Player, our new head coach discussed his outlook and philosophy.
"There are some things that have to have a blueprint," he said. "We have to have passion, we have to be dominant, we have to be aggressive. We have to play in the opponent's territory as much as we want.
"I want the ball, I want to attack them as much as possible, I want to prevent them from attacking me as much as possible. But as well, I think we have to create the right culture around the club that's going to make a good living out of the players, create an environment where everybody respects each other, a humility and people have to be accountable for what we want to achieve.
"That's the basic and then after we can grow from there. Then we can create an identity that I have in my head for this football club. But we have to start somewhere to try to build that up."
