Arsenal Life Brings You Things And You cannot Decide- Arteta

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is optimistic they will get over their poor start to the season ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Burnley.

The Gunners won their first league game last week against Norwich City courtesy of a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal.

Arsenal will be hoping to make it two win in a row when they travel to play Burnley on Saturday.

Arteta, who is under pressure in his pre-match conference, said the club is currently undergoing it’s a tough time for a reason.

“Life brings you things and you cannot decide it,” Arteta said.

There are certain things that you cannot control. What is coming to you is coming for a reason.

“Sometimes we don’t want to see it, but it’s coming for a reason – and it’s probably for the right reason. 

“Then it’s about how you take it and how you respond to that. The way that everyone around me responded is the way that I responded. That’s why it’s been fine. 

“It’s tough because it hurts, because you want to see something different. But what you want is not always what happens.

“Things happen for a reason and maybe what is happening had to happen and [maybe] it’s going to be really good for the club and really good for myself and everybody experiencing that situation. We have to believe that.

“When I was a player, I made a decision in my career because I had a personal issue with my parents,” he continued.

“I decided to go to my former club, Real Sociedad, and that was tough because I had other opportunities, but I did it to be at home next to them, because I thought that was important. 

“I suffered. I didn’t play – I was on the bench and I always said that was the key moment in my career to have more success after.

“I don’t know how you measure success, but to enjoy [it] more, to go to bigger clubs and do that, that was the right moment.

“Everybody that made those decisions, and the experiences that I had there, it was the right thing that I needed in that moment. 

“At that moment, I couldn’t see it. I was annoyed, upset, angry. I was really bad with myself and everybody, but, today looking back at it and reflecting on it, it was the perfect moment in the right time.”

“I can really see the light,” he said. “I’m telling you I’m very positive most of the time.

“I’ve seen the light and I can see bright lights. There can be bumps in the road within that light, but I can see a lot of light.”
