Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has come out to say that Liverpool has raised the bar so much that every team trying to catch up cannot catch a break.
Arteta recently revealed that he does not see any complacency from the Reds and he wants that consistency from his team.
According to him, what they have done in the Premier League and Champions League in recent years is admirable and that is the level to emulate.
He added that his players must take training seriously so as to deliver top performancs every week.
His words, “I don’t see any complacency [with Liverpool],”
“They go to any ground, even when they are 2-0 up, 3-0 up, 4-0 up, and they still go in the same way.
“This is an incredible credit to the coaching team, the culture they have created and the spirit of that team. You can see that in the 24 or 26 players they have in the squad.
“There is not one player that plays half-half on the day, that is not very interested or just plays for moments in the game. They just go for it, every single minute of every game. Throughout the season to do that for 10 months, that’s a massive compliment I think.”
“That is a different level. They have done that in the Premier League and in the Champions League as well. And that is why they raised the bar so high. Not only them, Man City as well in recent years.
“That is the level and you have to be able to compete at that level because this is our context and this is our reality.”
“If we want to be one of those teams, those basic things have to be implemented every day. That goes through in training – you cannot expect them to do that at weekends and train in a different way. That is the way you conduct yourself every day.”
