Arsenal’s newest signing, Mikel Arteta has told us why he decided to leave Evertone and join Arsenal.

Arteta said, “It is a big opportunity for me and my family and I think it is the right time for me to take it.

“It is a big challenge, a different challenge, fresh for me and I want to see myself on the biggest stage, the Champions League.

“I am 29-years-old so I haven’t got much time left to take a chance like this one. I think I have done my best for Everton.”

The Spanish playmaker went on to say, “It is very difficult to say goodbye. I still can’t believe it but at the same time I think it is the right moment for everyone.

“That is the way football is, there is always a start and an end and today is the end of probably the best time of my career. I am never going to forget it.

“It has been crazy. It has been a crazy day. I can’t believe what happened, and the way it happened but as I said, that is part of football and I am going to be playing for another club soon.

“Obviously I am never going to forget what I have done here and what the people and this club have done for me.

“I always try hard, I have been as professional as I could and I was grateful for the support and the love that the Club and the fans showed me.”

    Don’t forget about the past, learn from it. These signings (or rather the preferred signings) should have been in place before the start of the season. One point from 9 is appalling let alone the ManU humiliation. Learn from it.
