Francis Coquelin was not only one of the surprise packages of the season but also, in the end, an integral cog in the Arsenal machine.


Brought back into the fold from Charlton because of a bit of an injury crisis, Le Coq grabbed his opportunity with both hands and never let go. The Frenchman put in sterling performance after sterling performance cementing his place in the starting XI.

Coquelin was delighted to pick up his first FA Cup winners medal in a season in which he`d thought he`d finish up at a lower league side, but instead played his part in a tremendous end of season for The Arsenal.

Speaking with Arsenal Player he said "It`s a great feeling. It`s unbelievable, winning 4-0 as well with the way we played. I think the whole team has been tremendous and the last six months have been amazing for me. To end it off with a trophy is just great."

"It`s hard to believe. My whole family are here as well. Six months ago I was at Charlton and today I`m winning the FA Cup. Football can go so quick and I`m really pleased to get this trophy today. It was a big day in my career."

"I think we played a great display today. Everyone played really well and we were focused. At 1-0 we fought hard and had to put our chances in. The whole team was really concentrated over the 90 minutes and at the end, to win 4-0 is a bit big for the opponent. I think the performance was superb today and I`m really pleased to get the trophy."
