Arteta opens up on his Arsenal job after Villarreal's loss.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has revealed his job as Arsenal manager is at risk following his side’s Europa League semi-final defeat to Villarreal on Thursday evening.

Arsenal scored what seemed like a vital away goal in the first leg in Spain last week, but it turned out to be insignificant after a murky 0-0 draw at the Emirates Stadium.

The chances of Arteta’s side qualifying for any European tournament next season are now very slender and questions may be asked over the Arsenal manager.

While speaking to the media after the draw in north London, Arteta admitted that his job could be under some threat.

“I think everybody’s job is always in scrutiny,” Arteta admitted.

Arsenal will most likely not play European football now for the first time in 25 years unless they can pull off an extraordinary finish in the Premier League where they currently sit ninth.

Mikel Arteta will likely face critique for his tactical decisiveness across the two legs which saw him outdone by his predecessor in both matches.


Arteta admitted of how the result piles pressure on him. He added:

“I feel the pressure all the time because I want to do as good as I can for the team. Today is a big disappointment because we tried everything to be in the final.

“The way we started in Villarreal it wasn’t good enough. Set pieces. We didn’t arrive here at the best moment with everybody to give their best like we did last year in semi finals and finals.

“Probably we were a bit tense as well. In the second half I think we were much more dominant and created enough chances in the tie to win it.

“we are devastated really disappointed but we have to congratulate Villarreal. I think over two legs and what happened today in the second half we deserved to win the game.

“For me it’s very important that at the defining moment you should have everybody available at their best. And so many people trying to compete but not at their best.
