Theo Walcott admits Arsenal have “not been good enough” in recent seasons as their trophy drought continues.

The Gunners have not won a major trophy since beating Manchester United on penalties to lift the FA Cup back in 2005.

And Walcott is desperate to help Arsene Wenger’s new crop of players secure silverware again in seasons to come.

“It’s been a long time [since we won anything], everyone knows that and as players we know it’s not good enough. We need to be achieving what Arsenal did in previous history,” said Walcott.

“I want to be part of that and I’m definitely ready for the battle. We’ve got a great chance in the FA Cup and, although we’ve got a very tough game against Bayern [in the Champions League], I believe we can win that as well.

“The next step will come once we win that first medal. Hopefully once we do that we can win more and that’s my goal.”
