"I hope that he does not carry too much responsibility and continues to want to improve and be the best," Wenger said. "The rest will come, as he has immense talent. If he keeps the same desire to progress, it will come by itself.

That was sometimes too concentrated on one player from an attacking point of view. I hope that the loss will be compensated by the dividing up of these tasks."
