🇪🇸 Arteta: I feel the pressure

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, is feeling like one of the lonliest men in London, after the Gunners crashed out of the Europa League on Thursday night.

The Spaniard’s team lost to Villarreal 2-1 on aggregate in the semi-final battle, leaving the dream to play in the UEFA Champions League next season in shattered pieces.

Courageously asked about his suitability for the job, Arteta cooly responded:

"I wouldn't be sitting here if I couldn't. You will see it. It's not about talking, it's about showing it on the pitch,” he said, as quoted by Goal

"I feel the pressure all the time because I want to do as good as I can for the team, for every support that I have here and for the fans. Today is a big disappointment because we tried everything to be in that final.

"I think everybody's job is under scrutiny,” the Spaniard concluded.

Arsenal’s focus now switches to the final four league games, starting with West Brom on Sunday in London.
