The Arsenal manager was really happy to see his latest star player guide Chile to Copa America glory for the first time in the country’s history
Arsene Wenger claims that the former Barcelona attacker is already very focused on the upcoming campaign and is not letting the Copa America success get to his head despite the occasion being quite a unique one for him.
While talking to reporters, Wenger stated that he is confident that last season’s star player is as hungry as ever for winning titles with the Gunners.
“I texted him [after the final] and he texted me back. He was already focused on next season with Arsenal and wants to win everything with us. He was thrilled and very happy,” Wenger said while talking to the club’s official website.
“They had quite a comfortable lead when he took the penalty but I was a bit worried because he missed one with us.”
“He has shown again that he is scared of nothing. He took the ball and chipped the keeper. It was quite audacious but I was of course over the moon to see him bring the trophy to a country that has waited for such a long time,” the French manager explained.”
