Mikel Arteta has just signed a contract extension with Arsenal ahead of the new season, Breaking Sport News reports.
Arsenal has given Mikel Arteta the go-ahead to continue as their manager which he has put pen to paper.
The Gunners have been impressed with his handling of the team who are fighting hard to make the UEFA Champions League return.
They are currently in a fight with Tottenham who is proving very difficult to drop from their position and they both want the same thing.
Arsenal has moved into a better team than they used to be years ago who have been unable to fight for a top-four finish.
Their previous campaign saw them winning FA Cup and Community Shield during the first few months of Mikel Arteta’s era.
The former player and manager are not the only ones to get a new contract as his assistant Jones Eidevall also gets a deal.
They both signed new two years deals extending their contract to the 2024/25 season which is when it will come to an end.
What Mike Arteta Had To Say To Arsenal Website:
“I’m excited, grateful, and happy today.

“We want to take the club to the next level and to compete really with the top teams.
“To do that, we have to be playing in the Champions League.
