Share this article


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says he's prepared for the club to face punishment for signing up to the European Super League.

The Spaniard's confirmed he's received apologies from owner Stan Kroenke  and chief executive Vinai Venkatesham about their plans to join the failed breakaway competition.

"Yes, starting from Vinai, the ownership and everybody that is involved in the process," Arteta said when asked if the club's apology had also been made to the squad and coaching staff.

"Obviously they are the maximum responsible to run the football club. They apologised for disturbing the team, not having the capacity or ability to communicate in a different way earlier and explained the reasons why.

"And they passed on a message to the players. That's all you can ask for, and I have to accept it.

"All of them with the right intentions to defend the club, and put the club in the best possible position for now and for the future. But accepting that the way it's been handled has had terrible consequences and that it was a mistake.

"I have to really respect that when people have genuine intentions to do the best for this football club but, if it's not the right thing to do, they can apologise. I think the players, staff and everybody working at the club has to accept that and move on."
