Luiz enjoys his role as a statesman at Arsenal and wants to guide the young player at the club.
Arsenal have been in an outraging form this season. While going through ups and down they managed to challenge for the place in the top four. The former Chelsea defender David Luiz believes that his side can compete with the league leaders Liverpool this season for the Premier League title.
David Luiz insists that he’s enjoying his role as senior statesman at Arsenal and wants to help the club’s young players develop this season as they are good enough to challenge for a place in the top four.
The Brazilian Summer signing at 32, is the oldest member of Unai Emery’s squad and with over 600 games under his belt and titles won in three countries also is the most experienced of all.
While, Brazilian form has been a mixed bag since he made a move from Chelsea for £8 million, his influence in the dressing room has been obvious from the off, with a number of Arsenal players praising his warmth and willingness to share advice.
As per the reports he said,
“I think we’ve started really well and we just lost one game in the Premier League.“
I think the team is improving and now we are in third in the table but we want to finish this season fighting for the title.
This is our goal. I’m trying to my best for the team and for every single player and I’m so happy to be here with all of the talents we have in the club.
He also added,
Myself, as a senior play, I have over 600 games in my career, so I’m going to help the young players develop a lot and help the team…I think I’m continuing that role.
“I’ve been doing that the last few years already and to have the pleasure to do that. I’ve been doing that because it’s a pleasure and I like to see them enjoy improving and finding out the importance of how to play the game.“
“I’ve played a lot of games in my career, and the only game I haven’t played in is the World Cup final, so I want to enjoy this as much as I can.”
Arsenal have not lifted the English crown since 2004, having missed out on the Champions League in the last two season. It’s no secret that Arsenal’s primary aim is to get back to Europe’s top table either by finishing in the Premier League’s top four or by winning the Europa League.
“For me, if you start something, and we’ve just started the Premier League and all of the competitions, if you don’t think you can win the competition then you won’t start anything in your life.”
“The ambition has to be there, the dream has to be there. Also, you have to be humble and have the humility to understand how you can achieve this kind of thing.
“This is what you have to do every single day. To understand the plan, to work hard and understand that if you have the opportunity you have to give your best.“
After that, if you don’t achieve you have to understand why you didn’t achieve this kind of goal. But my vision, my ambition, and my will is always to fight for the title. And between the club, the players and the coach, we have the possibility to fight for the title.”
David Luiz being all optimistic about his new club believes that the Gunners should dream bigger and shouldn’t rule themselves out of a title push just yet. They are giving good performance this season and sits third in the Premier League table just nine points below the league leaders.
