Arteta - This is for the supporters

Mikel Arteta has been named the Premier League Manager of the Month for March.

The boss has scooped his second award of the season, after enjoying a perfect September, and takes the honour this time after three wins and a defeat last month.

After being presented with the trophy at our London Colney training ground, Arteta was quick to acknowledge the contribution of others, especially the Arsenal fans.

"Obviously it gives me a sense of pride because I know how difficult it is to do it in this league," he said.

"But we've done that not only with coaching staff, but all the staff that are here at Colney. Obviously the players too have to perform and win football matches in order to be recognised for that.

"And then especially to our supporters. For the way they have transformed the team, they deserve a lot of credit. My gratitude goes to everybody who helps in their way, and in the best possible way to try to win football matches, which is the reason why we are here."

It is the 17th time in Premier League history that an Arsenal boss has won the honour, and it's the first time the club has won the award twice in the same campaign since the 2007/08 season.
