Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has come out to say that the club has mapped out its next two transfer windows.
He recently that some of the team’s poor results have been down to bad luck, but planning is already done for January and summer business, so improvements can be expected.
According to him, it is very clear what he intends to do in the transfer market, and it is his job to make the most out of the squad.
He added that there is a reason why the team is not winning games anymore, and that is what he has to change.
His words, “The planning is done, what we want to do in January and in the summer,”
“Sometimes you can do it, sometimes not depending on a lot of factors. Edu is dealing with that at the moment and I’m focused with all the games, we don’t have much time to spend energy now on that because it’s very clear what we want to do.
“My job is to make the most out of this squad, the players that we have. We know what we want to do and we will try to execute it knowing that the actual context, market and what we’ve been through makes it’s difficult.”
“Every possible scenario that can happen in a Premier League match is considered there, what is really effecting results, what is really effect what is happening through the game in 96 minutes – and it works,”
“But then football is not like basketball. In basketball you shoot 50 times and the opponent does it once and you win every single game. It doesn’t work in football like that. You can do it the opposite way around and lose 1-0. We lost against Burnley conceding zero shots on target from the opponent.
“We lost it which is incredible but it happens in football unfortunately. Even those things you have to be able to control them, it’s pretty tricky. I’m telling you last year we were winning games with 25 per cent chance of winning, but we are so efficient when we get into this position.
“This is football but if you are constantly on sixties and seventies [per cent] long term you are going to win many more matches and this is what we have try to do. And believe sustain that, but still improve because there’s always a reason why you don’t win it and that’s what we have to change.”
