Mikel Arteta has extended his contract with Arsenal for another two years, emphasizing the necessity of earning a return to the Champions League in order to fight with the finest clubs in the country.
Arsenal made the announcement on Friday morning that Arteta has signed a three-year contract through the conclusion of the 2024-25 season, having had 12 months still to run on his present term following his arrival in December 2019.
The club issued a double statement, confirming a new contract for Arsenal Women’s manager Jonas Eidevall, who joined earlier this season and has now been extended until the end of the 2023-24 season.
“We want to take the club to the next level and to compete really with the top teams. In order to do that, we have to be playing in the Champions League. We have to be able to evolve the team, improve our players, improve all departments, generate even more connection with our fans, improve the atmosphere at the Emirates, be able to recruit top, top talent and the best people for this club to drive this project to that level.”
In similar circumstances to Arteta, Eidevall goes into this weekend’s final round of the Women’s Super League with their season aspirations on the line, with just a point between Arsenal and leaders Chelsea.
