Willian, an Arsenal winger, claims the north London club is in good hands under coach Mikel Arteta and that they have all the resources they need to regain their place as a European powerhouse.

Arsenal won the FA Cup last season under Spaniard Arteta, but the team has struggled since then, and they are currently ninth in the Premier League, a competition they last won in 2004 under Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal’s only chance this season is the Europa League after being knocked out of the FA Cup in the fourth round by Southampton. Willian, on the other hand, is convinced they’re on the right track.

“I think it has the potential to be a great project, it’s a great club, it’s in the hands of a good manager, he has everything to become one of the best managers in the world,” Willian told ESPN Brazil.

“Arsenal has everything to become a powerhouse again, to fight for titles, to play in the Champions League again, that’s what we players want.

“Arteta is doing a great job, he is always looking for the players in the best possible way, giving them ideas, guiding them, showing them what he wants. Arsenal is in good hands.”

Willian struggled to find his feet at Arsenal since joining on a free transfer from Chelsea last year, but the Brazilian has four assists in his last five appearances in all competitions.

“I never stopped training, to work, to dedicate myself as much as possible,” he said. “It took a little while, but in the last few games I’ve been playing well so I’m happy.”

After the international break, Arsenal will play champions Liverpool on April 3.
