Football: Mikel Arteta Gets New Appointment At Arsenal
According to the Gunners in the club announcement on Thursday, Arteta’s job description has changed from head coach to first-team manager.
“On the day he came through the gates, he was doing a lot more than just our head coach.
“So we’re going to change the title of his work. He’s going to switch from the head coach to the first team manager. This is an appreciation of what he has been doing since the day he walked through the door, but also where we see his talents, “the statement read in part.
Top Gist Portal notes that Arteta was named to replace Unai Emery in December 2019, and has already won two club trophies in his short term.
First, he led his team and club to a 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the 2020 FA Cup final and then beat Liverpool to win the Community Shield last month.
Arsenal will play against Fulham in the first game of the 2020/21 Premier League season, and fans of the club are hoping that the good times will continue under Arteta’s reign.
