Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, has acknowledged that his dismissal is “inevitable” at some point.
With 10 victories from his team’s first 12 games, the Spaniard has had an incredible start to the season, helping the Gunners to the top of the Premier League standings.
Despite being the youngest manager in England’s top division, Arteta is aware of how rapidly things can change at the top levels of management.
As a manager, getting fired is certainly the (greatest) concern, Arteta said on Michael Calvin’s Football People podcast.
“The day I made the decision to become a coach, it was a very deliberate one.
“I declared, ‘It will occur. Right now, tomorrow, in a month, and in ten years. I have no idea when it will occur.
“That cannot be the source of my emotion, and this cannot be the basis for my actions or inaction. The concern I currently have is of disappointing people.
