âItâs a big period for Arsenal. Since I was there they havenât experienced a situation like this," said the Brazil midfielder.
âNow they are out of the Champions League places which is very uncomfortable but Iâm sure they will pick up points and qualify like we expect.
âItâs quite hard for a big club like Arsenal to be so long without a title and the team is also very young.
âThey need time and this is the problem at Arsenal â when you are in a big club you donât have much time to grow up and they donât know how to cope under pressure.
âItâs hard work for the experienced players to help them in the situation they have.
âBut theyâve got quality and a good manager, Arsene Wenger will do a good job with them.â
