UEFA Champions League It will be incredible for Arsenal to win Champions League – Arteta

Arsenal touched down in Portugal on Tuesday ahead of their Round of 16 first leg tie against FC Porto at the Estadio do Dragao.

Speaking ahead of the game, Arteta wa asked whether winning the Champions League is the best thing Arsenal can win.

Arteta responded: “Well, it is certainly one of them, I’m don’t know if it’s the best, but it would be incredible to have that feeling to lift that cup in London on the 1st of June.

“It’s there, it’s in our minds, and it’s a dream but it’s a lot of things that you have to earn the right before that, and tomorrow we’re going to have a big obstacle ahead of us. We are really looking forward to it.”

On whether this is a chance for the team to prove how good they are, he said: “Yeah, it’s true because we don’t have the experience, that’s the reality – 95 per cent of the players have not played in this competition.

“They have never played in the last 16, I haven’t, but we have so much enthusiasm and energy as well, and willingness with a point to prove that we are good enough and want to be there. That’s our desire and the passion with which we’re going to play the game tomorrow (Wednesday).”
