Mikel Arteta admits he’s made mistakes this season following a disappointing first full season in charge at Arsenal.
Arteta enjoyed an impressive start to his reign at the Emirates after replacing the sacked Unai Emery mid-way through last season, guiding the Gunners to FA Cup success after beating Chelsea at Wembley.
The north London side have been unable to build on that silverware triumph during the 2020/21 campaign however, with Arsenal currently ninth and facing the prospect of missing out on European qualification and their lowest Premier League finish since 1995/95.
Speaking at a pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow’s trip to face Crystal Palace, Arteta has reflected on a testing campaign and concedes he has made mistakes during his first full season at the helm.
“I want to reflect in the next week or so when we finish,” said Arteta. “I’m sure I have done a lot of things wrong. 100% I can tell you now before going through it.
“How am I going to make much better decisions? Get the best out of these players and the football club and the resources we have. I have spent a lot of time and effort identifying critical points to change, how those decisions will be made and which time frame to do them.
“The capacity we have to do is incredible and I see that moment as a lot of change as big opportunity for our future.”
