Mikel Arteta signs contract extension at Arsenal

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has signed a new three-year contract.

The 40-year-old took over at the Emirates Stadium in December 2019 following the dismissal of Unai Emery.

He is close to taking the Gunners back into the Champions League for the first time in five years, with the side currently fourth in the Premier League as the season enters its final stages.

The announcement of Arteta’s new deal came at the same time as Arsenal women’s manager Jonas Eidevall also extended his stay.

The Swede was appointed last summer and could end his first campaign in charge by winning the Women’s Super League title with Arsenal just a point behind leaders Chelsea heading into the final weekend of the season.
