Mesut Ozil has sent a message to Arsenal fans after the club finished the season in fifth, missing out on Champions League football for next season.
The Gunners finished the season with a win, beating Everton 3-1 at the Emirates on the final day, but it was not enough as Liverpool beat Middlesbrough.
Arsenal can still finish the season on a high, with victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup final next weekend, and Ozil has clearly turned his thoughts to the Wembley showpiece already.

Arsenal have some problems ahead of the game with Laurent Koscielny suspended after his sending off against Everton while Gabriel is a huge doubt after picking up what looked like a serious injury on Sunday.
That could leave the Gunners short defensively although in Alexis Sanchez they certainly have a man in form at the other end of the pitch, with the Chilean netting his fifth goal in his last four games against Everton.

Arsenal can also look back to their 3-0 win over Chelsea back in September as evidence they can cause the champions problems at Wembley and pick up their 13th FA Cup.
