Mikel Arteta has spoken of the need to recover our footballing identity.
Speaking to Arsenal Player, he has revealed how he intends to bring us back to an attacking, fluent style of playing.
"Unfortunately, yes [that identity has slipped]," he told Arsenal Player. "That's my feeling and it's what I have to recover. We have to make little adjustments and the time for training is not a lot, so we have to be sure the players understand the idea that I want to bring to them.
"Slowly you will see some changes and where we want to head on. The direction's going to be very clear and it's not going to be negotiable. I will need the players to be on board with the right attitude, with the right passion and commitment. Step by step, we will be improving and reaching to find the right identity for us."
