Arteta launches staunch defence of Arsenal’s transfer policy

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has outlined his plans to guide the Gunners back to the top during a Twitter Q&A session with fans.

But he stopped short of revealing his expectations for the current campaign.

Arteta has overseen a disastrous start to the new Premier League season in which Arsenal sit in 16th after four games, three defeats before his side finally secured a precious win at home to Norwich last weekend.

The first three fixtures saw Arsenal lose to newly-promoted Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City – marking their worst start to a season for 118 years, the 5-0 defeat at the Etihad arguably Arsenal’s lowest point during Arteta’s reign.

However, the Spaniard remains optimistic – when presented with the question of where he sees this Arsenal side in three years time, Arteta said : “Wow, a lot – to take the club where it belongs.

“That in three years’ time we are sitting here and we feel so proud about the club that we have, about the connection that we have with every department of the football club, the connection that we have with our fans.

“That we can identify a team, that we can say ‘this is an Arsenal team’ by the way they play and what they are able to transmit to the world and that everybody is united and that we are an established club that can carry on to have a lot of success – that’s how I see the club in the next three years.”

The Arsenal boss did go on to address what has been a particularly challenging start to the campaign, stopping short of revealing his expectations for this current campaign.

“I think the only expectations we can have are for the next match and to be better the following day, when we get to March, we can realise where we are and what we have to fight for.

“It has been the toughest start, with a lot of adversity around the team and everything that has happened – we need to go back to certain basics, reinforce the team, start picking up points and then we will see where we get.”

Arsenal take on Burnley this weekend as they aim to secure their first win over the Clarets since August 2019, the Gunners manager highlighting the team spirit among his current crop as a positive to hold on to.

“Unity and togetherness, the atmosphere between them and how strong they are as a team.

“Blaming – it does not exist in this team, they have shown that time and time again through difficult patches so I am very proud of what they are building amongst themselves.”
