In the history of Arsenal, there are some players that will always be remembered and cannot be replaced. They have won several trophies and broke records. They are Ian Wright, Robert Pires, Tony Adams, Lee Dixon, Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp.

Thierry Henry, who is now a coach, said: “Although I arrived a world champion, I was nobody,” he admitted in a recent interview with Arsenal. “And rightly so. I hadn’t won anything at Arsenal, so who was I? I was just a follower at the beginning. You don’t arrive somewhere just with your name and impress the guys in the dressing room. You have to show them that you can fight for them and sometimes against them in training. And then, they will respect you,”

Another current player that is striving at Arsenal to be one of the team is Mesut Ozil. He loves his team and playing for Arsenal. He said in a interview: ‘’ I always believed in myself and my team-mates helped me a lot off the pitch and on the pitch too, so it was easy to be accepted into the team. It was a very, very good time for me because I had a lot of experiences and around those players, I grew up a lot.

“Then I found out I’d be moving into the first team I was very happy. The reaction of my family was that they were just very proud of me because I started playing football when I was about seven. I gave everything on the pitch, worked hard, to reach my dream.

At the end of the day, I achieved my dream to sign a professional contract for Schalke and everyone was proud. I was really, really happy at this time’’.
