‘It’s been an incredible two-year journey here'

Today marks exactly two years since Mikel Arteta took charge at the club.

Our manager has been through a huge amount in that time, so how does he reflect on everything that has happened?

"It's been an incredible journey and I am really happy and proud with the company that I have had on the journey," Arteta told Arsenal Media. 

"I would say we have been through different phases throughout those two years. A phase where straightaway we had to pick up results and try to turn around the situation we were in. 

"Then we had the two trophies, which was a big lift and a great memories, apart from not having the people, our supporters with us to enjoy that one. Then a year where we had everything: we had Covid, we had so many changes around the club from top to bottom and a really difficult one to manage, with some difficult moments and then finishing the season in a really strong way. 

"Now it is a new phase where we start to rebuild the team, we take a very clear direction with how we want to move forward with the club, a real connection between the team and supporters, the ownership and board and I think now it is excitement. 

"Excitement to keep driving this project forward, to keep working with this really young squad, but ready to compete, to get better and take the club back to where it belongs."
