Mikel Arteta, the Arsenal manager, has insisted that he will not resign his position.
This was what Arteta said on Monday, ahead of their quarter-final Carabao Cup clash at home against Manchester City.
Following a bad start to the Premier League season, the Spaniard is under pressure.
At present, the Gunners are sitting in 15th position, four points above the relegation spot.
Arteta said when asked if he would walk away as a manager: “I don’t like to think about those steps, because I’m going to think in a negative way then.”
“At the moment, I have to try to be as positive as I can, believe in what we’re doing, try to modify things to make it work better and stay strong.
“I’m not in that state of mind. I know the responsibility that I have and why I am here. Everybody knows that from a few months ago, this wasn’t going to be resolved really quickly. I think that’s the consciousness of everybody at the club.”
