Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has defended his management amid a massive squad overhaul.
In the last year Arsenal have now brought in 10 new signings and sold or released 21 players.
Arteta said: “It is a completely different squad with those numbers, it is unheard of. Now we have to make it work. We have to glide it together, build relationships, chemistry, understanding. We have to adapt and do that really quickly.
“The amount of changes in two years is almost 30 players. We are all participating, trying to build this project, obviously led by the owners.
“It is a project we believe in and have to assemble, because we believe it is the best option for the future of the club. We all take responsibility. We are all involved in the decision. Now we have to make it work.
“The complexity in football is that you want to build a medium-to-long-term project, with immediate results. We have to embrace that. There is no other way in football.”
