Arteta’s view on the concluded season
Mikel Arteta earlier apologized for the team’s poor performance at the last legs of the Premier League.
“I cannot assess the season today, I’m sorry, I’m still in a lot of pain after what happened on Monday. “I cannot give a fair assessment on what we’ve done. What I can guarantee is that we’ve tried to squeeze the lemon as much as we can for every single drop and we reached the point we reached.
I’m very grateful for everybody supporting our club, the way they’re giving us confidence, respect and motivation to drive forward because I think they believe in what we’re doing. But when you have it there – I’m a winner and I hate losing and we lost something we could win. That’s why I’m in pain.”
Arsenal were favorites for the top four as they had a 3-point lead over Tottenham with a game in hand. However, a loss to Tottenham and a string of poor results ensured that Tottenham finish top four. However, Arsenal have the youngest team in the league and have experience in the top flight. They will be hoping for a better finish in the upcoming season.
