Arteta’s aggression made us better in the second half – Lacazette


Arsenal Striker, Lacazette says Arteta was so erratic in the dressing room after an abysmal first half performance in the FA Cup against Leeds United.

The Championship Side were dominant in the first half at the Emirates, and Arteta didn’t like his team’s performance, and decided to share his feelings during the break.

“He shouted a lot! He was not happy because we knew they were going to play like this and we didn’t respect what he said,” Lacazette.


“Emotions are very high. They played very well in the first half and of course Leeds are a great team, I think they pressed us and we didn’t expect it. We got the final goal in the end and that’s the most important thing”.

“I think [shouting a lot] is good as a coach you always need to have the aggressive side and obviously the side where he’s loving as well,”.

“In training he’s always asking us to press with passion and play with purpose. Sometimes we played out wide, sometimes we played down the middle and it’s all paying off”.

“It gives us confidence to go forward on the [Crystal] Palace game [on Saturday], we want to go there and we want to do well. Getting two wins at the Emirates is good and we’re just going to carry on going forward”.
