EPL: Arteta admits that Arsenal will sack him someday

Mikel Arteta, Arsenal manager has acknowledged it is “unavoidable” that he will be fired one day.

The Spanish professional football manager has enjoyed a sensational start to this campaign, leading the Gunners to the top of the Premier League table with 10 wins from their first 12 fixtures.

Arteta may be the youngest boss in England’s top flight, but he is not inexperienced to know how quickly things can change in elite-level management.

Arteta told Michael Calvin’s Football People podcast, that as a manager, the biggest fear is getting sacked.

He said: “I made a very conscious decision the day I decided to become a coach.

I said: ‘It will happen. Today, tomorrow, in a month’s time, in 10 years’ time. I don’t know when it will happen.’

“That cannot drive my emotion and this cannot be the reason why I do certain things or not. For me now the fear is to let people down.”
