â€śItâ€™s a big period for Arsenal. Since I was there they havenâ€™t experienced a situation like this," said the Brazil midfielder.
â€śNow they are out of the Champions League places which is very uncomfortable but Iâ€™m sure they will pick up points and qualify like we expect.
â€śItâ€™s quite hard for a big club like Arsenal to be so long without a title and the team is also very young.
â€śThey need time and this is the problem at Arsenal â€” when you are in a big club you donâ€™t have much time to grow up and they donâ€™t know how to cope under pressure.
â€śItâ€™s hard work for the experienced players to help them in the situation they have.
â€śBut theyâ€™ve got quality and a good manager, Arsene Wenger will do a good job with them.â€ť
