Michael Arteta, Arsenal’s head coach expressed his sentiments following his defeat at Aston Villa (0:3) in the 8th round of the EPL.
“First, I would like to congratulate Aston Villa on its victory and the game they showed. They were stronger,” Arteta told BBC after the match.
“I take full responsibility for what happened because we played badly.”
“I will keep a secret what I told the players in the locker room. My job is to make the teamwork at the highest level every three days, that’s what we did not do today. It’s the first time I haven’t seen the team on the field since I was appointed.”
The London club lost three of its last four games in the English Premier League.
