Head coach of “Arsenal” Mikel Arteta after the defeat of the “Aston Villa” (0:1) in 37-m round of the championship of England spoke about the current state of the team.
The club finishes outside the top 6 for the first time in 25 years.
Villa fought well, and we lacked a bit of freshness. Congratulations opponents, they were subject to enormous pressure, and they still managed to win.
We had some good approaches, but we are unable to deliver the ball. Emotionally and physically it was an exhausting week, but I saw a team that wanted to fight to the end. I’m not disappointed with the team — you know, where we need to improve the game. We will do that.
Arsenal will be outside the top 6 for the first time in 25 years? The gap is not lying. We need to reduce it. I feel full support Kronke, the Board of Directors and athletic Director. 100 percent. Fans have to believe in what I’m saying,” said Arteta.
