Arteta Reveals What Happened In The Dressing Room After 1-1 Draw With Leicester


Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has revealed what happened in the dressing room after the Gunners were held to a 1-1 draw against Leicester City on Tuesday.

Arteta while speaking after the match noted that Eddie Nketiah apologized to his team-mates after he was sent off during the clash.

The club manager in his statement added that the player did nothing wrong and does not need to apologise,

The North London side took the lead through their captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on Tuesday night and then wasted several chances to extend their lead.

The game, however, went south after Nketiah was sent off moments after he was substituted, Leicester dominated from then on and equalized through Jamie Vardy.

Arteta when asked how Nketiah reacted to the red card, noted that “He’s disappointed, he said sorry, and he doesn’t need to do that.”

“I know when he goes for every single ball it’s because he’s so willing to win every challenge, to be on the front foot in every action.”

“He didn’t see the player coming up and obviously he doesn’t want to hurt anybody.”

“So it’s part of the process. They are really young, they need to learn from this situation and hopefully, it won’t happen again.”
