We cannot be crying – Arteta vows to carry out ‘ruthless’ Arsenal overhaul
Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has said he will carry out a “ruthless” overhaul of his squad this summer.
The Gunners are likely not to qualify for Europe for the first time in 25 years.
They were sent out of the Europa League by Villarreal on Thursday and currently sit in ninth place in the Premier League.
Following a disappointing end to the campaign, Arteta is keen to revamp his playing personnel ahead of next season.
“This year is not year one. I think a project has its phases and I am telling you we are in a much better position today to be where we want to be very soon, if we do what we have to do. But we have to be ruthless.
“We cannot be crying and stuck on what we don’t have. We have to see what we do have and maximise it to get what we want,” Arteta said.
