The Spaniard took charge as the Arsenal manager in 2019, taking a senior managerial role for the first time in his career.
In his first season in charge, the 40-year-old won the FA Cup with the Gunners, which earned him a promotion from head coach to manager.
Since his appointment as the manager, Arteta saw a lot of ups and downs, which saw many senior players leave the club and Arsenal miss out on Europe for the first time in 25 years.
Despite a poor start to the 2020-2021 season, the Gunners managed to turn the tide around and are now in strong contention for a fourth-place finish that would see them play in the Champions League for the first time since 2017.
This is what the gaffer had to say on ëxtending his Arsenal stay, “I’m excited, grateful and really, really happy today,” Mikel said after signing the extension, which runs until the end of season 2024/25.
"When I spoke to Josh he could see the club at the same point and he wanted to take the club the way I wanted to do it. So everything that he’s said, and that Stan has said when I’ve been together with both of them, they’ve always delivered.
“We want to take the club to the next level and to compete really with the top teams. In order to do that, we have to be playing in the Champions League. We have to be able to evolve the team, improve our players, improve all departments, generate even more connection with our fans, improve the atmosphere at the Emirates, be able to recruit top, top talent and the best people for this club to drive this project to that level.”
