by on December 21, 2011


Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta has spoken to ArsenalPlayer about Arsenal’s Champions League draw against Italian side AC Milan in the last sixteen of the competition. Arteta has previously said before having the opportunity to play in the Champions League was one of the reasons he left Everton on deadline day to join the Gunners.

The Spaniard on drawing AC Milan in the Champions League.

“I smiled when the draw was made because I think it’s a really good game to play.”

“It makes it more exciting to play a team like Milan. Any team at this stage of the Champions League is going to be tough, even if people think you are favourites.”

“I like playing against teams like this and we’ve got a good chance, so let’s play”

“All the boys feel the same. If we have to play them, so be it, and let’s try to win.”

The Arsenal midfielder also said playing in the Champions League was why he joined Arsenal.

“This is exactly why I came to Arsenal. In your career you want to have moments like this.”

“You don’t face them every day so we have to take this special opportunity.”
