Mikel Arteta Lashes Out At Arsenal Critics Over NLD Postponement

In the middle of the Covid-19 outbreak, Mikel Arteta believes it is hard to ensure the athletes’ well-being while still maintaining the integrity of sport throughout the holiday season.

A slew of postponements over the holidays has brought the packed match schedule over the holiday season back into focus, and Arteta argues it’s hard to preserve both the players’ well-being and the competition’s integrity at the same time.

“We had a managers’ meeting where we tried to expose our feelings and the situation but the decisions are already made so now we’re not going to change that,” began Arteta.

“I basically said we are discussing two things, which is the welfare of the players and the integrity of the competition.

“So whether we change the rules, we change the (Covid-19) testing system, we change whatever, we change or we cannot continue to do that, trying to achieve those two things, because it’s just impossible.”
