Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has signed a new contract which will keep him at the London club until 2025, the Premier League side announced on Friday.
Arteta took over from Unai Emery in December 2019 and his previous deal was due to expire at the end of next season. “I’m excited, grateful and really, really happy today,” the 40-year-old told the club’s website.
“When I spoke to (manager) Josh (Kroenke) he could see the club in one place and he wanted to take the club the way I wanted to. So everything he said, and that (owner) Stan (Kroenke) said that when I was with them, they were always up to the task.” Arteta won the FA Cup with Arsenal in the 2019-20 season after beating Chelsea in the final. In his first full season in charge last year, the Spaniard led the club to eighth place in the league. Arsenal currently sit fourth and last in the Champions League with four games remaining.
“We want to take the club to the next level and really compete with the best teams. To do that, we have to play in the Champions League. We have to be able to develop the team, improve our players, improve all the departments,” Arteta added.
