Sokratis asks for confidence and calm from his teammates
Updated: Nov 21, 2019
Our experienced centre-half believes we have the quality in the squad to finish top 4 and thinks we can develop confidence quickly.
Sokratis admits that confidence is at a low point after only picking up 2 points in our last 4 games and the squad neads to remain calm if they wish to break into the top 4 this season.
Speaking to the official Arsenal.com website, the Greek defender said, "It is a season that has a difficult moment, but we have still a lot of time and we need to improve, we need to play better and of course we have the time to do it. We also have the quality to do it.
We also have the quality to do it. The team needs confidence and calm to show the quality we have. This will give confidence also.
I think we can … because if we find one or two games where we can play very good and have a good result, after the team will take confidence and after that we have the quality.
The quality is here but I think we need confidence.”
Sokratis didn't feature in our 2-0 loss away to Leicester in the last gameweek, as Emery decided to use Luiz, Holding and Chambers in a 3 man defence. Whether or not the first team coach reverts back to his preferred back 4 featuring Sokratis remains to be seen.
