Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere believes their FA Cup triumph is all down to the loyal fans that pay good money to watch the Gunners, as reported by Sky Sports.
The Gunners came from 2-0 to defeat Hull 3-2 in the FA Cup final after extra time, a feat that ended a nine year streak without a trophy for the North London club.
Wilshere has battled his way back to fitness in time for the World Cup and could not have asked for a better end to the season.
The boyhood West Ham supporter has dedicated the cup win to the fans who have stuck by them in tough times recently.
“It’s hard to put into words (what this victory means to me). It’s been nine years now – we’ve waited a long time for this,” Wilshere told Sky Sports News.
“We’ve worked hard and the manager has worked hard but most of all this is for the fans who fill the stadium every week. This one is for them.
“It was a bad start. We’ve done that a few times this season and been punished but we knew if we got a goal before half-time we could go on and win it. We’re a fit team and we’ve got quality as well. That’s a good mixture and we showed that.
