Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby has expressed sympathy for the fans after another season without a trophy at the Emirates.

A nightmare fortnight at the end of February and beginning of March saw the Gunners lose a Carling Cup final, get knocked out of the FA Cup and Champions League respectively and then fall off the pace in the Barclays Premier League.

Without a trophy in six years, questions are starting to be raised at the Emirates over Arsene Wenger's future and the mentality of several first team players. French international Diaby insists the current squad is good enough, and his teammates will push themselves to end the disappointment next season.

"Here [in England] the football is like a religion. When you play, you can feel the love and that gives you another energy to push yourself," he told the official Arsenal online TV channel.


"It is hard for them [Arsenal fans]. They want us to play well first, but to win trophies at the end. Even when I walk on the street and see some Arsenal fans, they are really, really disappointed when we lose games and don't win trophies.

"They are used to winning trophies every year. Now we have not won any trophy for six years, which is really hard for them.

"Every day you have to prove you are one of the best. You are training with the best players in the world. You always have to push up your level and be better every day."
