Mathieu Flamini and Hector Bellerin spoke to the media after Arsenal’s 3-0 Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb.
Here is a transcript of what they said.
on the result…MF: I think it was a great result today. We played well. It was important for us and for the fans also, to get back [in contention] in the Champions League. So congratulations to the guys.
on if Arsenal showed their true colours…HB: I think the team knew it was a very important day today and we had to turn up. Everyone did that. Now we have to play for our lives, but this was an important test for us to be alive in the Champions League. The team responded very well.
on the Olympiacos game…MF: We know it’s not going to be easy but we are ready for these kind of games. Now we’re going to recover, because we gave a lot today. We played a good game and we have time to think about Olympiacos.
on if Arsenal will be a threat providing they qualify…HB: Yeah I think so. The team have shown it all through the season. There’s a lot of creativity, a lot of quality up front, and we’re defending very solidly. Games like this show what the potential of the team is and when we have all the players back [in addition to the team we have already], I think we’re going to be a team that’s going to be up there.
