Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has called upon his players to maintain their resilience in the face of recent setbacks, emphasising that they should view themselves as fortunate for the opportunities they have.

The Gunners suffered a disappointing exit from the Champions League quarter-finals at the hands of Bayern Munich, followed by a crucial defeat against Aston Villa in the Premier League title race. However, Arteta remains optimistic about Arsenal’s prospects and believes they can bounce back.

Ahead of their upcoming match against Wolves, where a victory could propel them to the top of the Premier League table, Arteta delivered a motivational message to his squad: “Don’t feel sorry for yourself.”

Reflecting on the challenges they’ve faced, Arteta stressed the importance of embracing the opportunity to compete at the highest level. “These are the weeks that we want and have been seeking for many years to have at Arsenal,” he remarked. “If you want to be in this position, you have to go through it and it’s going to be tough.”


Acknowledging the fine margins in top-level competition, Arteta emphasised the need for his players to remain resilient, even in the face of setbacks. “Are you ready to react to that? If not, you’re not ready to be living these kinds of weeks, and we want to be living these kinds of weeks,” he asserted.


Despite the recent disappointment, Arteta sees the adversity as an opportunity for growth and development. “It is testing your resilience and your ego,” he explained. “That is the beauty of it, as well.”

Looking ahead to their upcoming fixtures, Arteta remains focused on the task at hand. “On Saturday, you can be at home and you can be the happiest man ever, saying we have a real chance here, let’s go for it with five games to go. We have to make that happen. That is our job,” he concluded.

Arsenal’s journey in both domestic and European competitions continues to present challenges, but under Arteta’s guidance, the team remains determined to overcome obstacles and pursue success.
