- The German forward says is pleased with Mikel Arteta's work.
- Arsenal are a huge club that must play in the Champions League every year.
- The 34-year-old hopes that the boss will succeed.
- Lucas urges the owners to invest money so the club can challenge for the title again.
"It depends on running, on the fighting spirit. You see they're more of a team on the pitch, with the fans, Arsenal is one of the big five teams in the world.
"And with this potential, with everything, you know, we have to play in the Champions League every year and fight for the title. Every year.
"We have to invest and I hope Mikel, with this team around, [will] do a great job for the next season."
Arteta also believes that we'll return to CL next season:
The manager has often been praised for steadying the ship at the Emirates, with players and pundits queuing up to express their admiration for the 38-year-old.
"And, right now, with the change of Mikel as a coach, every single game is an opportunity to learn and to adapt ourselves to the new way of playing. We've all realised that, if we play in the way Mikel tells us to play, we will do great things," the full-back said in January.
"Everyone who I’ve spoken to [...] would say they wouldn’t mind playing against us because they knew they could get opportunities. [...] I think Arteta has changed that a bit," said the West Ham midfielder earlier in April.
Meanwhile, speaking of the Champions League, in case the current Premiership campaign is cancelled, the Gunners are unlikely to end up in the continent's most prestigious tournament. However, we do stand a chance of qualifying for the Europa League.
