Mikel Arteta Back Arsenal Board After Koenke Stunt

The manager of Arsenal Mikel Arteta comes to the defense of the club men on Tuesday after the fans flew a banner over the Villa Park that has wording on it “Back Arteta, Kroenke Out”.

Aston Villa managed to defeat Arsenal by 1-0, which put Arsenal at 10 place in the Premier League. With this ranking, Arsenal are facing their worst performance after 1995, when they were placed on 12th number.

The Skipper Mikel Arteta has been the encouraging signs of progress both for the team and management since he took over charge back in December. The US billionaire and owner Stan Kroenke comes under heavy fire from the fans of Arsenal after the lack of interest in the transfer market.

Mikel Arteta said, “I have full support from the Kroenkes, from the board, from the sporting director. We are putting a very strong plan together to try to do as much as we can in the shortest period.”

“At the end of the day the league table doesn’t lie and we know the gap we have to fill in. We are on board trying to do everything together.”

Spaniard said, “I don’t know but if that’s the impression it’s not what I wanted to do. I wanted to emphasise — and I’d do it again — we need to improve in many areas.”

“The first is my responsibility to improve the team, individually and the mentality of course as well. After that in certain areas we need to get better,” he added.

“Uncertainty is the reality. We have uncertainty because the coronavirus hit everybody hard, we don’t know if we are finishing in Europe and there is uncertainty with a few players. I have to try to be honest and that’s what I said,” he continued.
