Managers of some of the Premier League’s major clubs appear to be renewing their contracts this season. Last week, Jurgen Klopp signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool, while Pep Guardiola is close to extending his contract with Manchester City.
While Arsenal will finish the season without a trophy to show for their efforts, Arteta has supervised a positive change in the squad, with a special focus on decreasing the team’s average. While a top-four finish is not certain, the Gunners are the favorites to finish fourth in the Premier League table, ahead of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.
“I’m excited, appreciative, and very, really happy today,” Arteta said shortly after signing the contract. When I spoke with Josh, he saw the club in the same light as I did, and he wanted to move it in the direction I intended. When I’ve been with both of them, they’ve always delivered on what he’s stated and Stan has said.”
Arsenal Women’s head coach Jonas Eidevall has also signed a new contract with the north London club, joining Arteta. It will be intriguing to see if Arsenal can maintain the Arteta revolution over the next three years.
