“Don’t Be Sad” – Mikel Arteta Addresses Arsenal Crowd After Near Miss With Powerful Message

Mikel Arteta and Arsenal have narrowly missed winning the Premier League title once again. However, the Spanish manager is confident that they will eventually claim the top spot.

Mikel Arteta addressed the Arsenal crowd after they fell short in the Premier League title race, promising, “we’re going to get it.”

The Gunners needed a final-day miracle to clinch the championship but had to focus on securing three points against Everton. Despite their victory, it was futile as Manchester City swiftly took the lead against West Ham and sealed their own win.

Throughout the season, Arsenal kept pace with Pep Guardiola’s team, but even winning their last matches wasn’t enough as City didn’t drop a point. This marks another close call for the north Londoners, who also finished second last season.

With 89 points, Arsenal achieved their second-best tally in Premier League history. Arteta, however, is determined to maintain high spirits at the Emirates. The Spanish coach has revitalised Arsenal, turning them into contenders again, and remains confident they will eventually succeed.

He said: “All this is happening because you started believing, you started to be patient and started to understand what we tried to do. All the credit has to go to the players and the staff. Don’t be sad. We want much more than that and we’re going to get it.”

Arsenal relied on a late goal from Kai Havertz to defeat Everton, who had initially gone ahead with a deflected free-kick by Idrissa Gueye. Takehiro Tomiyasu leveled the score just before halftime, but Arsenal never managed to put enough pressure on City.

Manchester City took the lead almost immediately through Phil Foden, who also scored their second goal. Mohamed Kudus pulled one back for West Ham, but Rodri’s second-half strike ensured a 3-1 victory for the champions.

Arteta will be aware that, despite Arsenal’s progress and significant investment, they have ended another season without a trophy. Nonetheless, he successfully led them to their first Champions League quarter-final in over a decade.

Havertz told TNT Sports: “What can I say? I feel sorry for all the Arsenal fans. We gave our best but it wasn’t enough. Maybe in two or three months we can say it was a good fight. Right now I feel like we deserve more. It wasn’t enough in the end but we go again next year.”
