Laurent Koscielny has urged his Arsenal players to develop a disdain for losing, insisting it’ll need more than talent to beat their opponents.
Arsenal fans are keeping the pressure on Arsene Wenger, as they are yet to win an EPL trophy in over a decade and are also on the brink of exiting the UCL last-16 for the seventh consecutive season.
Koscielny believes that although Arsenal possess the ability to go head-to-head with the elite, their mentality going into important games falls some way short.
“We have the technical and physical qualities,” Koscielny told RMC Sport. “We must put in the effort for the whole match. Against the big teams, it takes more than talent.
“It takes more commitment. We are in a complicated situation, [but] we must remain united.
“We must have the hatred of losing.”
