Arsenal face Hull in the FA Cup final today in a bid to end their 9 year wait for a trophy. FATV spoke to Arsenal stalwart defender Laurent Koscielny on his excitement, the desire to win this trophy, the talent of Sagbo and playing at Wembley.
Koscielny discusses what Arsenal will need to do in the FA Cup Final to try to win it, as well as how a victory would relieve so much pressure off the Arsenal team.
The FA Cup Final has returned to having its own day in the calendar this year. Alex Horne, The FA’s General Secretary, said: “We’re well aware that fans and media have been calling for The FA Cup Final to have a day to itself and we’re delighted that this is going to happen for 2014.
“It’s the first time we’ve managed to get the FA Cup Final a stand-alone date since Chelsea v Portsmouth in 2010 but there have been various reasons for that, not least the two UEFA Champions League Finals at Wembley Stadium which have been fantastic occasions and required huge resources and a massive build up time behind the scenes.”
