Wenger pleased with Arsenal players' Euros form

Giroud and Koscielny comfort Arsenal teammate, Mesut Ozil. That disappointment to lose a final, it takes some time to recover from that.

"You consider the rest time because France had a long, long go and I believe that they need four weeks' holiday because they need to recover from that", Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger said to the club's official website.

He began by confirming that both Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud will receive at least four weeks holiday, as France reached the final and both players made appearances in all of their country's games.

The tactical side of football is always developing and changing to some extent and Arsene Wenger has himself earned a well deserved reputation for the way that Arsenal have played the game since he took over as our manager nearly 20 years ago. "I wanted a game before we travelled to the States".

It remains to be seen how long it will take Alexis Sánchez to recover from the ankle injury he sustained in helping Chile win the Copa América in the United States.

And while the worldwide tournaments may affect his own team's start to the season, Wenger said he was pleased to see his players do well.

The fact that Wenger has given the players who featured at worldwide tournaments this summer more time off means they could miss the start of the season, but the 66-year-old is only focusing on the individuals he now has at disposal.

But the possession based football that has been the Arsenal way for many years now could be coming under threat from the new tactics that were widely used at this summer's Euro 2016 tournament, so I wonder whether the prof is starting to think seriously about a rethink. "I met him after the game with France, he was of course very disappointed but a lot of them had good performances".

England's early exit meant Jack Wilshere was back in training on Friday, along with Costa Rica's Joel Campbell.
