Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has told Football.London that he would like a new contract at the club.
However, Arteta has made it clear that he has to earn a new deal, adding that things change quickly in football.
As reported by Bleacher Report in December 2019, the Gunners appointed the Spaniard as their head coach on a contract until 2023.
Arteta was promoted to the role of Arsenal manager in September 2020, as reported by FourFourTwo.
The Arsenal boss told Football.London when asked if he would want a new contract: “Yes, but I have to earn that. Now in football you have to earn it every week and things change really quickly, so we have to be on our toes. Obviously, it’s my responsibility to plan medium and long-term as well, but that’s with or without me.
“At the end, the time that I’m going to be at this football club will be related to how much I can move the club forward, improve the team and be a success on the pitch and get the values and the vision that I want to implement into this club as well off the pitch.”
New contract for Mikel Arteta?
Arteta was appointed in his role at Arsenal only in December 2019, and it is too soon to talk about the Spaniard getting a new deal.
True, the North London club won the FA Cup last season and will play in the Europa League in 2020-21, but there is a lot of work still to be done.
Arsenal need to get back to the Champions League, and that has to be Arteta’s main objective.
The Gunners have started the season well, and the fans will be encouraged by how Arteta is managing everything at the club.
Arsenal will return to action on Saturday evening when they take on Manchester City away from home at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League.
