Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has praised the impact of defensive coach Steve Bould and claims that his side can finish with the best defensive record in the league.
Skipper Thomas Vermaelen spoke about the defensive solidarity at the back and ushered heaps of praise on the former Arsenal defender who joined Wenger’s coaching staff after the retirement of Pat Rice.
Arsenal have yet to concede a goal in the current Barclays Premier League campaign and Wenger said that the signs are positive enough for the greater challenges ahead.
‘We have played two teams who didn’t really attack, but he [Bould] is doing a good job,’ Wenger said.
‘We continue our training regime. He has taken over from Pat Rice for the defensive job where he is doing very well.
‘Will we finish with the best defence in the league? I hope so.’
However, the Frenchman insisted that his side will still continue to play free-flowing, attacking football and would be looking to score more goals.
‘No, no, we want to score goals, but Steve Bould is doing very well and I am confident we have a good defensive record at the end of the season,’ Wenger concluded.
