“I’m extremely sad”: Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta issues heartbreaking statement after Manchester City won Premier League

It’s official – Manchester City are the 2022-23 Premier League champions after trailing Arsenal for the majority of the season. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is extremely disappointed in losing the title, and he reflects on how his team could do better to match Manchester City’s stunning performances.

The London-based club lost their hopes of catching up to the table toppers after losing 1-0 to Nottingham Forest last night, who were battling to avoid relegation. Arsenal’s defeat makes the Cityzens officially the title winners and secures the Premier League spot for Nottingham Forest.

The Gunners were at the top of the table for 248 days and even held an 8-point lead over Manchester City in March. However, their title hopes came crumbling down after managing to win just two of their last eight games, and Manchester City took the opportunity to take the lead and finish the season at the top.

Pep Guardiola’s men have shown stunning performances in their recent games, winning 11 straight matches. No one can deny that they were deserving champions.

Mikel Arteta is “extremely sad”

In an interview with Sky Sports, Mikel Arteta expressed his disappointment in losing the Premier League title to Manchester City.

“It is very painful. I’m extremely sad. I have to find a way to lift the players. We have a difficult week ahead of us, and we have a huge responsibility,” said the Spanish manager during the interview.

He also credited how incredible the Gunners’ fans have been the whole season and said that the fans deserve a better show in their remaining game. “They have been incredible the whole season, and they deserve a really good match.”

Aaron Ramsdale blames the Arsenal players

Aaron Ramsdale, the team’s goalkeeper, says the Gunners are to blame for their own demise. “We had a few games where we dropped points through individual mistakes. Those three or four games are where it’s gone wrong,” he said.

“The dust won’t settle until the summer. We are very disappointed how it has happened but we are proud we pushed all the way.

“One team in six seasons has beaten Manchester City to the title. But it was our own doing, individual errors in games we should have won.”

Nevertheless, you can expect to see Manchester City celebrating the 2022-23 Premier League title after their game against Chelsea today.
