Arsenal cannot aspire to be like Chelsea Football Club, Rob Holding has said. He recently revealed that the Gunners must continue to see the Blues as a complete rival.
According to him, he never wants to see a rival as a team to look up to, and he doesn’t feel Chelsea will ever see Arsenal like that either.
Holding added that there is a mutual respect between both clubs and it will continue to remain that way.
His words, “I see Chelsea as a competitive rival for us.”
“I don’t see them as a team we aspire to be like, and I don’t think they see us that way either. There’s a mutual respect between us and a recent history with FA Cup finals and playing each other in big games.”
“I don’t think that, because they won the Champions League, we need to be more like Chelsea. Our results and league position need to improve, of course, but when we play each other it’s competitive.”
“We’ve got to be aiming to get back in the Champions League. With no Europe this season we’ve got no distractions or fixture congestion and can really focus on our Premier League games.”
“I think Liverpool did the same a few years ago, and Chelsea similarly when they won the league in Antonio Conte’s first year. So it can be a blessing in disguise in some aspects.”
“We’ve just got to think of it that way and hit the ground running.”
