Thierry Henry hopes that Arsenal’s back-to-back FA Cup success is the start of a new era of glory for the club.
The legendary striker is impressed with the depth of the Gunners’ squad and believes they have made significant progress over the past few seasons.
However, he says that if they are to compete for the very biggest prizes they must become more consistent.
"Our generation started by winning the cup and went on to win a Double and stayed unbeaten - that is all I can hope for this group to do"
“It’s a difficult task to win the FA Cup back to back, but they have done that,” Henry told Arsenal Player at the kit launch of the 2015/16 home shirt. “It was a way more difficult game against Hull than Aston Villa.
“You could see right from the start [against Villa] that Arsenal were going to win the game, and that made it easier for us fans to watch - it was less nerve-racking than the year before.
“So the progress is there, now what we are waiting for is the consistency in the league because that is very important. That is where you can judge a team, in the league.
“Having said that, our generation started by winning the cup and went on to win a Double and stayed unbeaten - that is all I can hope for this group to do.”
