Mikel Arteta: Arsenal manager not thinking of walking away from job

Arteta led Arsenal to victory in the FA Cup last season

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says he has no plans to walk away from his job and feels he has the support of the club. The Gunners have failed to win any of their past seven Premier League games, losing five and drawing two, as they have dropped to 15th in the table.

“I don’t like to think about those steps [walking away] because then I will be thinking in a negative way and I cannot do that,” said Arteta. “At the moment, I have to try to be as positive as I can.”

Arteta was speaking before Arsenal host Manchester City on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals. “We’re going through a lot of difficulties, the last thing we want to be thinking of is more problems coming up in the next few months. I’m not in that state of mind,” he said.

“I know the responsibility that I have and why I am here. Everybody knows that from a few months ago, this wasn’t going to be resolved really quickly. I think that’s the consciousness of everybody at the club.”
