“That spell had a harmful effect. Now we have not at that problem at all. All the players are focused and want to win and have great solidarity to show how good we are.

“It was very frustrating back then but as managers have to deal with all kinds of situations. Sometimes it’s about quality, sometimes it psychological, but that’s our job.

“This is a team that’s very hungry. I think they’ve shown that in the Cup in the last two years. This team wants to do well and I think my job is more to relax them a little bit.

“Sir Alex Ferguson used to call this period ‘squeaky bum time’ but I read many things which are not completely verified by the statistics.

“For example, there is a perception that Arsenal fades in March and April. But if you look over 20 years we have always finished stronger in the second part of the season.

“We have lost once or twice the championship but you could say that about Man United as well, any team.
