Arteta wins Best Premier League Coach award

Mikel Arteta receives his award from Cesc Fabregas

Mikel Arteta has picked up the Best Coach - Premier League award at the KAFD Globe Soccer Awards Europe.

Mikel was in attendance in Sardinia to collect his prize at the inaugural European edition of the awards, held since 2010 by the Dubai-based football organisation that coordinates the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards.

Organised in partnership with the Dubai Sports Council, select winners from the European edition will be shortlisted for the year-ending Dubai Globe Soccer Awards global event in the United Arab Emirates.

Mikel was presented with his trophy by former Gunner Cesc Fabregas, with the judging panel impressed by him guiding us to a record 28 wins in the Premier League and a total of 89 points from the campaign, plus the 18 clean sheets we kept and the style of play the boss has created.

Speaking after receiving his latest piece of silverware, he said: “I feel extremely proud because when I decided to stop my career as a football player I thought that all the joy and best moments were gone, and I was totally wrong because when I started my coaching and managerial career, I love it even more.

“I have to thank all the players, coaching staff and everybody involved at the football club for making my days so enjoyable, so inspiring and for supporting me in this journey that we started four years ago that hopefully is going to take us right to the top to win many trophies.

“We’ve been building for a few years and right now we have a team that is full of enthusiasm, and so hungry to win trophies. We know the competition but we believe we can do it, so we’re going to give it a real go.”

Other winners on the night were Kylian Mbappe, who was deemed Best Men’s Player, Xabi Alonso who was named Best Coach, and Harry Kane who won Best Goalscorer.
