London [UK], May 7 (ANI): Arsenal FC’s head coach Mikel Arteta has signed a two-year contract extension with the Premier League club on Friday.
The new contract extension means the Spaniard will be at Emirates Stadium at least until the end of season 2024/25.
“I’m excited, grateful and really, really happy today,” Mikel said, after signing the extension, in a statement.
“When I spoke to Josh he could see the club at the same point and he wanted to take the club the way I wanted to do it. So everything that he’s said, and that Stan has said when I’ve been together with both of them, they’ve always delivered.”
“We want to take the club to the next level and to compete really with the top teams. In order to do that, we have to be playing in the Champions League. We have to be able to evolve the team, improve our players, improve all departments, generate even more connection with our fans, improve the atmosphere at the Emirates, be able to recruit top, top talent and the best people for this club to drive this project to that level,” he added.
Jonas Eidevall has also put pen to paper on a new deal after an impressive first season in London, in which he has taken the Women’s Super League title challenge all the way to the final weekend.
Jonas, who joined the north-London club from the Swedish side Rosengard last summer, has signed a contract to the end of the 2023/24 season. (ANI)
