Committed Monreal eyes trophy

Arsenal new boy Nacho Monreal insists he is 100 per cent committed to the cause as he aims to help end the Gunners' trophy drought.

The 26-year-old Spaniard switched to the Emirates for 8.7million from Malaga on transfer deadline day.

Since his arrival at left-back, the Gunners have kept a clean sheet against Stoke and Sunderland and Monreal is determined to help his new club succeed.

He told The Sun: "I'm asked to defend well and not so much to score goals.

"When I go forward and assist others, it is as if I have scored, so that is a great satisfaction for me.

"I am a committed person and so give 100 per cent in every game.

"That is the best attribute a footballer can have: that every Saturday you give everything you have for your team."

He added: "I cannot complain about my career but I would like to win a trophy - and I hope I can do this with Arsenal."
