Jorginho expects Arteta to “stay way longer”

Jorginho expects Mikel Arteta to commit his future to the club because the Spaniard, with support from technical director Edu and the board, has “created something special”.

Arteta became head coach at the Emirates in December 2019, earned a promotion to manager nine months later and penned an extension to his contract in April 2022 which runs until next summer.

Having joined a club that was struggling on a number of levels, Arteta has been credited with executing a clear plan to make the Gunners competitive on the pitch again.

It was a slow burn at first – consecutive eighth-place finishes had people questioning his credentials – but a push for Champions League football in 21/22 followed by two title challenges have established the 42-year-old as one of the best young coaches in Europe.

While clubs have circled this season – Barcelona, for one, used their media contacts to express their interest – there are no suggestions Arteta wants to move. Indeed, while he’s stayed silent on the subject, it’s thought talks over a new contract have been taking place in the background.

Having committed his own short-term future to the club, Jorginho senses Arteta is on the same wavelength.

“I feel that he could stay way longer,” the Italy international told ESPN on Friday,

“I feel he feels good here and I honestly don’t see him going. It is really important for the club for him to stay because him with [technical director] Edu and the board, the whole club, they created something special. I don’t believe he wants to go as well.”

Having experienced a series of managerial changes during his time at Chelsea, the midfielder knows more than most about the benefits of stability.

On Arsenal’s current situation, he said: “You have the direction that you need to go.

“You go in that direction or you are not part of the project. It is very clear. Everyone that is here wants to be in the same direction.”

For the next eight days, all focus will be on winning the remaining two league games against Manchester United and Everton. After that, we hope to hear more about Arteta’s future.

Just like Wenger, Arteta will stay way longer, the Arsenal way, oops, Emery.


Exactly the kind of Arsenal div comment that needs to be pulled up.

I presume you’re 12 so your stupidity is understandable.

What Arteta has done is unbelievable, especially going up against the Abu Dhabi state club. Let’s see how the 115 charges go, but even without that I think we win next season despite their cheating ✌️

To win the league this year or next will be his greatest achievement in his managerial career. What he has done with our beautiful club is phenomenal


It’ll be a Quadruple


Well said mate


He loves us, we love him (he has taken us on an excellent upward path). I hope he doesn’t break up the relationship for a very long time and keeps us on that path.


Fuck £ity. That is all.


Our only hope is Tottenham… I shall now pour gasoline all over myself and light up a crack pipe


Would be hilarious if spurs won us the league. That chant will be sung for an eternity.


Don’t even bother hoping on s***s.


Winning the league at white hart lane again….


You mean city to win the league there? =/


On the other hand, it’s actually a terrible place to be for Spurs fans who still have hope for the team.
If the team mirror the fan mentality and roll over they can kiss goodbye to any kind of success in the coming years with that mentality.
If the team actually show up like they should do maybe we have a chance.

They’ve even almost caught up to our goal difference, fucking hell.

I miss santi cazorla

Well done Kroenkes!


A sentence I never thought I’d read.


They have done excellent jobs in the last 5 years for the teams they own…Denver Nuggets, Rams, Arsenal next fir championship


I don’t want us to be in the Championship, that would be a disaster!

Can we count Leno, Willian and Iwobi?


City vs Fulham is completely indifferent, because this result and city is going to be eliminated. Send them in a box to Mars!

He’s got no hair but we don’t care...

The Villa game was the chance.
Until next year.


You’re clearly not a veteran of May 1989.

Until it’s mathematically impossible, I’m still going to believe and back the manager and the team.

And whatever happens now, the title was won and lost over 38 games, NOT the Villa game.

If your looking for decisive moments, cast your mind back to Newcastle away and the home team being allowed to cross back a ball that had clearly gone out of play….


Indeed, 5 losses is too many these days if you want to win the league, especially against a financially doped side that operates with the impunity of a cheat code. But we are making enormous progress as a team and Arteta has brought the club back to the top of the game — the trophies are coming, beginning, as you say, with next year!!

Love this club and these players!


Pep’s days are numbered and if the 115 charges kick in, City are finished.

Arteta’s Arsenal are the future.


He’s got no hair but we don’t care...

Sadly the 115 charges will not stick. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised that just to say sorry for daring to level the charges at Man City, the premier league give them an extra 50 points to say sorry.


Can’t see Miki going anywhere soon, the guy is driven to make us successful, he loves our club, there is a recording of all the goals Man c scored against us as Peps number 2 on the bench, unlike Pep and his coaching staff he never celebrates, in fact he looks a pissed off with every goal scored against us, all of his decisions like getting rid of captains, trouble makers, expensive buys, benching fans favourites he will decide when to put pen on paper, he’s to preoccupied focusing on our team and rightly so.


It is what it is 😁
