Recently, Arsenal midfielder Xhaka accepted an official interview with the club. He said that Thomas’ joining will bring Arsenal a balance of lineup, strength and mentality.
He will be an important person to me and to the team. Everyone in the club can be happy because he has great abilities. He will bring a better mentality to our game. His joining is also a good balance for our lineup, because this is what we need more: a winning mentality. He plays in Atletico, which is a different type of football. He will bring a lot of good ideas and mentality.
I am a very hard working person, maybe no one sees this, or few people see this, but when I came here and signed the first day of the contract, I was the happiest person in the world. Because I know what it means to play for this club.
I know what people want, which is hard work for me. I think I am the right person, and I want to do more for the club. This is not a show (being a team leader), this is me. I don't like making shows. As a leader, what I tell others is from the heart, rather than pretending to say something to everyone. This is my inner thought, and I try to help everyone.
