"I think we have a great opportunity," he told the club's official website.
"Hopefully all the people that have played at the World Cup come back strong and fit and we can hit the ground running when the season starts.
"The feeling we got after winning the FA Cup was something special and I'm sure that everybody wants the same thing again this season. We'll be giving it everything to win a few things this year.
"The media were always saying things like 'Arsenal haven't won a trophy for this many years'. The number kept getting higher so it was important to win something to take that burden away. It takes the pressure off us.
"I think the team has come on a long way in the last couple of seasons. We've grown a lot - there's a great team spirit here, everybody wants to work for each other so we'll give it a good go."
