The Spanish coach has been appointed the new manager of the first team 'gunner', which will increase his responsibilities considerably.


Arsenal have announced that Mikel Arteta is transitioning from being their first team coach to being their new manager. This does not mean that the Spanish coach stops directing the London team, but that his responsibilities at the club increase considerably. This has been explained by Vinai Venkatesham, executive director of the 'gunner' club, to Arsenal Digital.

“Mikel has been here since the end of December and the last nine months have been probably the most challenging in Arsenal's history, and we've been around for 134 years. Despite this, Mikel has taken the club forward, ”said Venkatesham.

“It has rekindled the spirit and energy here at London Colney and in all Arsenal fans. He's doing an absolutely phenomenal job, ”he said. “Another thing that is clear is that since he walked through this door, he has done much more than being our coach. Therefore, we are changing your job title. He will go from being our coach to being our manager. It is a recognition of what he has done since he arrived, but also for his capabilities, "he continued.

"He is doing a great job managing the first team and this is his main responsibility, but there are many more things that he can bring and that is why we make this change, in recognition of his capabilities and also for the work he is already doing," he explained. Venkatesham.

“In terms of how it's going to work, Mikel will make a really strong team with Edu (Arsenal's technical director) and they'll work very closely together to handle the rest of the elements of our four sections, which are very important: analysis, recruitment, high performance and medicine. They will take care of these areas together, ”he confirmed.

"And they will also be responsible for our technical recommendations, whether they are the players we are going to buy, sell or transfer," he continued. “Of course, they will work closely with me and the board, as well as the financial owners to make the final decisions. But these are going to be their responsibilities and I think we are going to have a very dynamic team to make this club move forward, "he concluded.
