Mikel Arteta spoke three different languages in the space of 10 seconds during Man City's victory.
The North London team reached that final by shaking Manchester City 2-0 at Wembley thanks to a kick from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Strikes by champions Liverpool and Man City in the space of three days, not bad.
It has not always been easy navigation for Spanish since his arrival at the club in December. He may have worked alongside Pep Guardiola in City, but many thought he lacked the managerial experience to take responsibility for a great club at this stage.
But Arsenal's performance, and the result, on Saturday night showed that things are working quite well.
Art deserves much praise for this.
And during the match, the former midfielder proved who an intelligent man really is.
Arteta speaks MANY languages: Spanish, English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Catalan and Basque.
And fans heard him speak three of them in a few seconds to give instructions to his players during the game.
He spoke to Joe Willock in English, Alexandre Lacazette in France, and then Dani Ceballos in Spanish.
