Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has come out to say that his club can close the huge gap between themselves and the top teams in the EPL.
He recently reevaled that it is very possible and he is looking forward to the beautiful challenge ahead.
According to him, he would do everything to take Arsenal back to where it belongs, which is with the top teams in the country and in Europe.
He added that this season has shown that there is big room for improvement and it really hurts.
His words, “I don’t think the league table lies at the end of 10 months with 38 games. Hopefully next season it will be very different.
“We have a beautiful challenge, a very demanding challenge but a beautiful challenge ahead of us. We have to get this right and bring this club back to where it belongs which is with the top teams in the country and in Europe. In order to do that we have to make a lot of good decisions.
“We haven’t been consistent. We obviously had a lot of issues as well in the background, a lot of things that had happened, but at the end of the day we weren’t good enough to be with the top teams.
“That’s not a lie and it shows the big room for improvement and the gap that is still there and has to be minimised really, really quickly in order to be in a good position to challenge those teams.”
“It hurts so much. When I said it’s a beautiful challenge, and as well from my side, it’s to bring the club into those positions again.
“I know how difficult it’s going to be because you can see the other teams, what they’re doing, what they’ve been doing the last few seasons.
“The road and the direction we have to take in order to be quick in that transition. I’m very positive that we’re going to be able to do it.”
