Arteta: “Arsenal needed to play”

Arteta happy Arsenal will be playing after having most of their matches postponed


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta believes that his side needed to play after the EPL resumed.

Last week’s premier league matches were called off following the death of Queen Elizabeth the II.

Arsenal’s Europa League game against PSV was also postponed.

Mikel Arteta on the other hand is also pleased that the Gunners will be playing after having so many matches postponed.

“We needed to play. We want to play games. If you look at the schedule, after World Cup especially. We need to play games, or it is going to be tough,” he said in Friday’s press conference.

“It is phenomenal what the country has done. It shows the level of respect and admiration [the public have for her] and the legacy the Queen has left.

“It was very emotional, coming from a different country and culture it was pretty special.”
