"The fans are really clever, they are fantastic," he said.
"They know the important thing is the match, to follow and support the players. If this happens (the song), I hope it happens in the beginning as I'm a little bit shy. The focus is on Arsenal, this is the match and we want to win and say, 'This is for the fans.'
"I created an amazing connection (with the fans). I am not the main protagonist – that is always the players. They have to play well to win the matches, but I prefer to have this kind of contact and feeling with the fans. It's always important."
