After Arsenal’s Europa League exit, Arteta admits his job under scrutiny
Mikel Arteta, Arsenal manager, has admitted he could lose his position at the club, saying that “everyone’s job is under scrutiny”.
But the Arsenal manager insisted he will prove himself worthy after the Gunners were sent out of the Europa League by Villarreal on Thursday.
Arsenal played out a 0-0 draw in their semi-final second leg, after losing 2-1 in Spain.
With the loss, the club now face the possibility of no European football next season for the first time in 25 years.
When asked if he was the right man to pick his players up, Arteta said: “I wouldn’t be sitting here if I couldn’t. You will see it. It’s not about talking, it’s about showing it on the pitch.
“I feel the pressure all the time because I want to do as good as I can for the team, for every support that I have here and for the fans. Today is a big disappointment because we tried everything to be in that final.
“I think everybody’s job is under scrutiny.”
