Arteta: I am sure I have done a lot of things wrong

by Koolkola

Mikel Arteta has admitted he got a lot of things wrong, as he has began to reflect on the season.

Our season has been piss poor, as all the excitement of winning the FA cup and Community Shield quickly faded out earlier in the season.

As things stand, the club will be missing out on European football for the first time since 1995. A damning fact on Arteta’s reign so far.

Speaking ahead of the game against Crystal Palace, Arteta has admitted that he got a lot of things wrong.

“I want to reflect in the next week or so when we finish, but I’m sure that I’ve done a lot of things wrong, 100 per cent I can tell you now before going through it”, Arteta said.

“So how am I going to make much better decisions, get the best out of these players, out of this football club and the resources that we have.

“I have spent a lot of time and effort identifying critical points to change, then how those changes are going to be made [and] in what timeframe we can do them. I want to spend time building, creating and with all the foundations that we have in place now, evolve the team, the club, everything, the way we want to do it.

“I want a pre-season where we can work with the players and create. I am a really creative person, I want to create and evolve and a lot of time since I came here, it’s been to determine and make some very, very difficult decisions where I’ve had to undo [what’s gone on before].

“I want to do more, more, more and more because the capacity that we have to do it is incredible. I’m so excited about that. I see that moment where there’s a lot of change to be a big opportunity for our future.”

The manager was stylishly asked if he was a footballing Picasso, and he responded:

“I’m not saying that. I’m saying that I love to create.

“There are a lot of good things we’ve done since we changed many things, but there is still a lot to do, a lot to catch up but the potential is incredible.

“I can see the ambition from the club first and when I can see that type of ambition we have an incredible margin to achieve what we want.”
