After a stormy season, Arsenal has called back their ex-captain, Mikel Arteta to coach the current team on a three-and-a-half-year deal. The 37-year old has been with Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola since 2016 after retiring as a player.
At the moment, Arsenal is trailing at the number 10th position on the Premier league position.
He will be watching the team this Saturday against former club, Everton from the stands while the current interim coach, Freddie Ljunberg leads the team for the last time.
Speaking about the recent appointment, Arsenal director, Josh Kroenke said;
"We’re delighted to be bringing Mikel back to Arsenal. He knows our expectations and those of our fans around the world are high and we are confident he can play a lead role in taking the club back to the levels we all demand.
"I also want to thank Freddie Ljungberg for skilfully guiding us through the last three weeks. He stepped up at short notice and has helped us through this difficult period with great professionalism."
