Arsenal idol loves what he's heard from Edu amid 'incredible' Liverpool claim - 'it's music to my ears'

Kevin Campbell is over the moon to hear Arsenal technical director Edu outline the club’s plan to challenge Liverpool and Man City at the top of the table.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gunners and Everton striker said the 44-year-old has the same mindset as ex-manager George Graham.

In an interview with The Athletic (25 July), Edu said the club are building a side capable of winning competitions and insisted the target is not just to finish inside the top four.

He claimed Mikel Arteta’s side “cannot accept” Man City’s and Liverpool’s dominance over the Premier League.

Campbell was thrilled by Edu’s comments.

“This was music to my ears, let me tell you,” he told Football Insider.

“Listen, the first time I walked into Arsenal that was the mindset. That is exactly what George Graham though in ’86.

“Of course Man City and Liverpool are up there. They are amazing teams but they have the target on their back. They are the ones you have to go for.

“If you get in amongst them, you have a chance. The top four is important but it doesn’t make you successful. Getting in amongst City and Liverpool come the end of the season makes you competitive and successful.

“That has to be the aim for Arsenal. They have been there before.

“The level of consistency from Liverpool and City has been incredible. But that has to be every team’s goal.”
