Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes that the Gunners now possess the needed confidence to approach every game with the right mentality.
Speaking to Arsenal Player after the 2-1 win against Borussia Dortmund at the Emirates Stadium, the Wales International was full of praise for the German side as he explained that they did well in the first part of the game, putting pressure on the Arsenal players who bounced back in the second half and secured all three points.
Asked about the importance of reaching the next round as group winners, the 20-year old declared that the objective of the players is to make the Emirates a “fortress” as it was the case in the old Highbury stadium.
After the win, the youngster said:
[Borussia Dortmund] have done really well, I think they also did well against Bayern Munich in their league.
They came here and put pressure on us but in the second half we managed to get the breakthrough and we’re delighted with the result.
I think a lot of people were writing us off at the beginning when the groups came out but we’re the first [English] team through and finished first.
[How important that the 2nd leg will be at home?] At home we’ve done really well and this is the place we want to make our fortress.
Hopefully that can be the case and I’m sure we’ve given ourselves a good opportunity now.
[How far we can go?] We’ll take it one game at a time. We feel like we can beat anybody at the moment with the form we’re in so hopefully we get a good team and we can progress to the next round.
