The former Man city assistant manager vows to stand for any set of pressure after he has given the Arsenal managerial throne.
Arsenal are slagged behind the 9th position in the premier league table, it is going to be a great impact for him to survive the team to next Champions league position.
Mikel Arteta has made it clear that he was given a clear message by Gunners’ board for him to compete for honors at the Emirates stadium.
The Spaniard replaces Freddie Ljungberg who has been acting on interim capacity since Unai Emery was sacked at Arsenal.
The newest Arsenal manager spent three years at the Etihad stadium as an assistant coach where he won two Premier League titles with Pep Guardiola.
“This is a huge honour. Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in the world.
“We need to be competing for the top trophies in the game and that’s been made very clear to me in my discussions with Stan and Josh Kroenke, and the senior people from the club.
“We all know there is a lot of work to be done to achieve that but I am confident we’ll do it. I’m realistic enough to know it won’t happen overnight but the current squad has plenty of talent,” Mikel Arteta explained.
Arsenal are currently occupying 10th position on the Premier League standings with 22 points after 17 games played this term.
