Two goals in six friendly matches, some good moments, positive signs, it has been going well for Alexandre Lacazette in Arsenal’s preseason, but he’s the first to acknowledge that it will take some time to really ‘catch up’ with the new reality he is living.
It’s very different to Lyon, so it’s up to me to adapt as quickly as possible and repay the faith shown in me. I really have the impression I have moved into another world, be it in terms of the players, the technical staff, the football, everything is different. That’s what I came here for. I have to adapt and do that as quickly as possible
the French striker told reporters, eager to make the most of his first weeks/months at Arsenal.
It’s a great league, lots of teams. I don’t think there are any small teams because even against the smallest clubs it’s difficult. I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes this season
the former Lyon star also said. He hasn’t played a Premier League match yet, but he knows the tempo of the game will be very different to what he’s used to.
On another note, Alexis Sanchez took part in his first training with Arsenal this summer, and was seen smiling and joking with teammates and members of the coaching staff.
