Manager Bio

Mikel Arteta is Arsenal's first-team manager, having been appointed to replace Unai Emery on 20 December 2019.

As a player, Arteta began his youth career at Barcelona before taking in spells at Paris Saint-Germain, Rangers and Real Sociedad.

His introduction to English football came during a loan spell at Everton in January 2005, before making the move to Goodison Park permanent six months later.

He moved to Arsenal in August 2011, where he was named club captain ahead of the 2014/15 season. The Spaniard won two FA Cups during his time with the Gunners, before retiring in 2016.

Arteta was appointed as an assistant coach at Manchester City in July 2016 working under manager Pep Guardiola, and was part of the coaching team that won the Premier League in 2017/18 with a record 100 points.

City became the first club in 10 seasons to retain the Premier League trophy a year later, while they also won two EFL Cups and one FA Cup during Arteta's time at the Etihad Stadium.

The Gunners finished eighth in a Premier League campaign that was suspended for 100 days due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

But under Arteta Arsenal's season ended on a high with victory in the FA Cup final and qualification for the UEFA Europa League.
