Arsenal play attractive football, and I enjoy that. I think you could see against the MLS side that this team has a lot of quality, and we'll give our all to show that on the pitch.
In Camden, it's just the atmosphere that gets me. It's simple. It's nice. It's real. And it's the people, too. I like to interact with them because they are normal and I am normal. People probably don't expect an Arsenal player to come to Camden Lock and, basically, be a normal guy.
I still want to improve in every way. I'm a young player. I want to work, and that's my aim: to improve in every single aspect of my play.
I'd no longer be the same player without my rigorousness, and certainly not the player Arsenal wanted.
Arsenal is Arsenal. It's not a small club; it's a very big club, and it's like a family. It's very good for me because I love my family, and to have another family here is very good.
I don't think Gladbach are on the same level as Arsenal.
I am in an outstanding city, an outstanding club. The only thing that Arsenal has been missing is a league title.
I will give everything to help Arsenal win trophies and make the fans happy.
Arsenal prepare the players in the best way. They pay attention to every detail. We are able to recover optimally during our flights. The food and the service, everything's geared perfectly to each other.
A club like Arsenal, it's normal that expectations are high. This club must compete for titles, and that's what we want to do.
It's aggressive, and I like the way Arsenal play football. It's not like other countries, but it's very, very nice here.
What happens here, the daily agenda of Arsenal, is very different from what I experienced in Monchengladbach.
The fans are amazing. I'm really happy here at Arsenal, and I'm going to do my best for this club.
When I went to Gladbach from Basel in 2012, I put a lot of pressure on myself at first, and it was too heavy. I will not put any pressure on myself at Arsenal, even though the transfer fee was high.
Arsenal were really interested in me for a long time, and I think that I fit into the football Arsenal play.
One of the most revealing details about my parents is that they only got together three months before my dad's arrest.
No, Borussia is not falling apart. It does not matter whichever players will leave. That is what the past has showed. The club has developed and actually improved despite big-name players leaving.
I wouldn't change myself for anybody. I am who I am; people accept me, or they don't. I have my strengths and my weaknesses, which I can try to improve upon, of course. I'm still not the finished product.
