Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta rejects PSG job links: ‘I’m incredibly happy here’

Mikel Arteta insists he is “extremely happy” at Arsenal after being linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

eports in France this week announced that PSG have included the Gunners coach on a shortlist of candidates to replace Mauricio Pochettino at the end of the season.

Arteta will enter the final year of his contract at Arsenal this summer, although the club are planning to negotiate a new deal.

The Spaniard spent a season on loan at PSG at the start of his playing career and has impressed the club’s hierarchy with the work he has done at Arsenal.

But Arteta, who leads Arsenal into the match against Liverpool tonight, in fourth place and in the top position to qualify for the Champions League, has no intention of leaving.

Asked what his message was to Arsenal fans who feared he might be lured by PSG, Arteta said: “It’s very simple. I am extremely happy to be here and grateful that this is where I am.”

Arsenal are expected to hold contract talks with Arteta in the summer, meaning the Spaniard can now fully focus on pushing the club to qualify for the Champions League.

The Gunners are in good form and tonight’s match at Emirates Stadium has won five consecutive Premier League matches. They are one point ahead of Manchester United in fifth place, with three games in hand.

Arteta believes this is the best achievement Arsenal have shown since he was hired in December 2019 but insists there is still a lot of work to be done.

“This will never stop, this is a continuous evolution because the level is not here,” he added. “The level that Premier League teams used to play and produce in terms of numbers, in terms of stats, is over the roof.

“In the history of the Premier League, there has never been such a game and such competition. So we don’t know where that limit is.

“Every plan that we do is with players and people who have the mentality that this will continue to grow, that it will never be good enough. And to do that, you need to always have the people who fit that vision. “

Tonight will be Arsenal’s fourth visit to Liverpool this season and they have yet to beat them.

There was optimism going into the Emirates match despite Arsenal’s fine form, but Arteta still wanted to keep their feet on the ground.

“We didn’t do anything [yet], “I said. “What we’re doing is trying to improve, better understand what we want, much more consistent in performance and results, nothing else.”
