Djourou looking to give something back to Arsenal fans

Arsenal defender Johan Djourou admits he did not give enough last season and is vowing to redeem himself next term.

The Swiss international, who felled gunners teammate Jack Wilshere to give away a penalty in yesterday's 2-2 draw with England, feels he did not show what he is made of for the North London club last term.

He admits that it was not a happy season for Arsenal but says that 2011/12 will be a campaign that the club and fans can look forward to.

"For the team, it was difficult because we were playing for so many trophies at the same time and we were so close to getting one," he said.

"Last season, I didn't play a game and to play so many games and have a good season, I was happy.

"Obviously, now we want to do better as a team and as individuals to get something.

"I think that the fans deserve and the manager deserves something.

"We need to get better, get stronger, and really prepare well for next season."
