Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta believes that his side had to come through a lot of adversity to claim their first major trophy in nine years as they won the FA Cup.

Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has claimed that his side deserve their FA Cup win after overcoming adversity to end their nine-year trophy drought.

The Gunners fell 2-0 behind in the first 10 minutes of the final against Hull City, but rallied to draw level in the second half before Aaron Ramsey hit an extra-time winner.

Arteta told the club's official website: "We had some difficult years and it took a while to build this team and this spirit but I think yesterday was the best example of what it means for us and how much we want it.

"It's for everyone to deserve - especially for the fans because they've been terrific through the year again. Now it's time to enjoy it - that's what we fight for and we've got the first trophy for years."

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confirmed that he will remain at the club next season and will reportedly sign a new deal before the start of the World Cup.
