EPL: Arsenal take poor penalties in loss to Atletico in Singapore

"He has always been fully committed to taking Arsenal forward and is now working hard in Singapore with our new head coach Unai Emery as we prepare for the new season". "I think he is going to stay here with us".

Our first official pre-season game was a comprehensive 8-0 victory over Boreham Wood while we've also played a couple of behind closed doors matches at the training ground Crawley and Brentford. He's a very good person, a very good professional.

Despite the fact that a majority of Arsenal's first team attack played, they couldn't penetrate the strong Atletico defense and lost 3-1 in the penalty shootout.

Ozil, who caused a furore when he quit German national duty claiming racism, was rested after his World Cup exertions as 17-year-old midfielder Emile Smith Rowe took centre-stage in Singapore.

"This goal Smith scored was very good for him, for the team but I think what's important for us is that everyone, the young players and new players, were working very well today", said the Spaniard.

Malcom passes Barcelona medical for £36.5m move from Bordeaux
He arrived in Barcelona on Tuesday and will undergo a medical on Wednesday before joining his new teammates in the United States. Barcelona have announced the €41million signing of Bordeaux winger Malcom , who had appeared set to join Serie A side Roma .

Emery also insisted that while no-one has yet been chosen to succeed Per Mertesacker as club captain, he wishes to have "five captains" in his side for next season.

That has created a structure where Gazidis, Sanllehi and Mislintat work together with Emery on most key decisions - a major departure from the Wenger years, when the Frenchman had the final say on almost everything.

After Jack Wilshere joined West Ham earlier this month following talks with Unai Emery, Ramsey is now Arsenal's longest-serving player. I want him to stay with us, to work with us, to give the team big performances with his quality.

The Argentinian said: "I'm really happy with the performance of the youngsters".

"When he came to Arsenal I knew a very high profile sports agent, who told me he was "the worst negotiator" he had ever dealt with".
