Mikel Arteta signs new contract with Arsenal
Mikel Arteta has agreed to terms with Arsenal on a new deal that will last until the conclusion of the 2024-25 season.
Arteta took over as Arsenal manager at the end of 2019 and has helped the team return to contention for a top-four finish in the Premier League and qualification for the Champions League.
On Friday morning, Arsenal announced a double managerial deal, with women’s manager Jonas Eidevall also agreeing to a new contract.
Arteta told the Arsenal club website: “I’m excited, grateful, and really, really happy today.
“When I spoke to Josh [Kroenke] he could see the club at the same point and he wanted to take the club the way I wanted to do it. So everything that he’s said, and that Stan [Kroenke] has said when I’ve been together with both of them, they’ve always delivered.
“We want to take the club to the next level and to compete really with the top teams. In order to do that, we have to be playing in the Champions League.
“We have to be able to evolve the team, improve our players, improve all departments, generate even more connection with our fans, improve the atmosphere at the Emirates, be able to recruit top, top talent and the best people for this club to drive this project to that level.”
