The 32-year-old has tipped Mikel Arteta to become one of the best managers in the world and claims they have an excellent chance of winning silverware.
In the next two seasons, Arsenal winger Willian is optimistic his side would win the Premier League.
It has been 16 years since the English top-flight crown was last lifted by the Gunners and they currently sit ninth in the table after seven games this term-four points behind Southampton and Liverpool champions.
Willian, who joined the North London side in the summer transfer window on a free transfer from Chelsea, believes head coach Mikel Arteta has a powerful squad at his disposal and expects them to mount a significant silverware challenge.
He told the Daily Mail, “Arsenal have a great coach and a great opportunity to compete for titles.”
“The league can be won. Maybe not this time, but the next time. I ‘m inspired to be more competitive.”
Arsenal bounced back last Sunday with a 1-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford after losing to Manchester City and Leicester in the league.
Willian said, “That was a great United victory and it was important for me to be part of it, as I know I have to impose my standard on the team.” “The triumph was a big step.
With great young talent, the squad is strong, but they still need seasoned players who have won stuff. Changing an attitude is not simple or swift, but we are on the way.
He continued: “Clubs trying to fight for titles when they are dominant should not lose points like that [against Leicester].” We need some games to win, but we’re on the way. We are, I realize. We defeated United the next week. That tells you a great deal.
The 32-year-old Brazil international has confidence in coach Arteta and hopes a top boss to become the former Arsenal midfielder.
“It’s because of his opinions. It’s different from the way he sees football. The structure, the way he speaks, his suggestions. It’s unique. He’s going to be one of the best I think he’s going to be,” he said.
“He just wants me to be the same Chelsea player I was. Take the ball and go one on one. Take shots, dribble. But I can get better with his ideas and guidance.”
