“This is one of my best teams” – Wenger after Arsenal grab Champions League ticket

Arsene Wenger has hailed his Arsenal players as “one of the best groups” he has had, during his time in charge of the Gunners.

Laurent Koscielny scored the decisive goal – like he did against West Brom last year – as Arsenal finished above Tottenham Hotspurs in fourth place, clinching the last ticket from England to the Champions League.

“They are special.” he said. “I’ve told them many times but they’ve shown it in the last two months they’ve been absolutely exceptional. We have shown character and attitude. We make 73 points, that’s three points better than last season.

“I’ve had many groups in my life and the focus, the desire to do well, was exceptional. It’s one of the best groups I’ve had in my life on that front.”

The Frenchman, also hinted at new faces in the summer, with Yaya Sanogo looking to be the first arrival.

“We want to have additions to the squad [over the summer] but keep first the structure and spirit of the team we have now. But, let’s not forget, there are many clubs who have big money and there’s maybe not enough talent to strengthen all the teams who have money,” he said.
