Mikel Arteta delighted with Arsenal’s ‘unity’ ahead of 100th game


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has expressed delight with the squad’s team spirit and ability to fight through tough moments, as he prepares to celebrate his 100th game in charge of the Gunners.

Arteta has seen plenty of highs and lows during his time at the club, winning the FA Cup and yet also coming under significant pressure in almost two years in charge.

Even this season, things started off woefully, but the boss has managed to turn things around. The team come into his 100th game on Sunday on a run of seven wins and two draws in their last nine games in all competitions, and he credits togetherness for that recovery.

“For me if I have to define our identity, it is one word now: unity,” he told club media. “The past that we had in recent months, it is only one, unity. 

“Without unity you can’t achieve what we want to achieve and unity means every person that works in the organisation, it’s our way of playing, it our way of transmitting, our way of playing, it is our way of transmitting our values, our way of connecting with our fans, our ownership is everybody, uniform, thinking in the same way, with the same purpose, without any individual agendas, without any egos, just that’s the task.
