Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has recently opened up about his decision to stop his touchdown antics on the sidelines during games. The 41-year-old Spaniard, who took over as the gunners’ boss in December 2019, has admitted that he is changing his behavior in order to avoid getting sent off and to maintain a positive image for the club.

In a recent interview with The Metro UK, Arteta said, “I think I am changing. If you think differently, let me know. But I have made a conscious effort. Basically I don’t want to get sent off. Sometimes when I look at myself and I’m so agitated I think it can sometimes give an image that is not the best, mainly for the club.”

Arteta’s comments come before his team’s recent 5-0 victory over Sheffield United at the Emirates Stadium. The gunners are currently in 2nd position on the Premier League table with 24 points in the 2023/24 campaign, solidifying their position as title contenders this season.

However, the Arsenal boss is aware of the impact his behavior can have on the team and the club’s image. He added, “Sometimes it’s difficult with certain decisions when you are in the [of the moment], because you are representing the club and you want to defend them. That’s what drives me. It’s to defend the players to defend the club. Nothing else.”

Arteta also emphasized that his main focus is on ensuring that Arsenal are the best and most competitive they can be. He said, “You are there to be on it and make sure that we are the best we can be and the most competitive we possibly can be. That’s the drive, nothing else.”

The former Arsenal midfielder also highlighted the importance of maintaining focus during games and not letting his behavior affect the team’s performance. He said, “What I don’t allow is that behaviour changes the focus. Then I cannot look at the game or make divisions with clarity.”

As Arsenal gear up for their Carabao Cup round of 16 clash against West Ham United on Saturday, it will be interesting to see if Arteta sticks to his promise of changing his behavior on the sidelines. One thing is for sure, the gunners will be looking to continue their impressive form and secure a spot in the quarter-finals of the competition.
