Mikel Arteta has signed a new deal that will retain him at the club until 2025. It has been revealed by Premier League club. Arteta succeeded Unai Emery as manager in December 2019. And his previous contract was slated to expire at the end of the season.
“I’m delighted, appreciative, and really pleased today,” the 40-year-old said on the club’s website. “When I met with (director) Josh (Kroenke), he could see the club at the same place that I saw. And he wanted to take the club in the direction I wanted to take it.” So, whatever he’s stated, and everything (owner) Stan (Kroenke) has said, they’ve consistently delivered while I’ve been with both of them.”
Arteta led Arsenal win the FA Cup in the 2019-20 season, defeating Chelsea in the final. Last season, in his first full season in command, the Spaniard led the team to eighth place in the league. Arsenal is presently in fourth position and holds the last Champions League spot with four games remaining.
“We want to push the club to the next level and compete with the best.” To accomplish so, we must compete in the Champions League. We must be able to evolve the squad, enhance our players, and improve all areas,” Arteta continued.
