Former Arsenal star Edu says it's time for the club's younger players to take more responsibility.

The injured Valencia midfielder said: "The time which I was here, we had players with a bit more experience in the team.

"We had three or four of the best players in the world playing, now that time has gone.

"Now it is another generation with Cesc Fabregas, Gilberto, and I hope they continue winning and bring trophies to Arsenal."

Edu added: "At Highbury, we had a lot of history and memories of big moments - now there is a new stadium, and another time, for the new generation, new stadium, new players and everyone together."
