I want players to try to earn their place not to be happy: Arsenal boss Arteta

Mikel says he wants his players to fight for their place in the squad.

Even if someone does not get enough chances in the first team, he should work hard and he will be rewarded.

"We just try to assess everything individually but as well in a collective way and a player that doesn't play is never happy and I don't want them to be happy," Mikel Arteta said ahead of the Sheffield United clash.

"What I want is for them to try to earn their place, try to change it. We have a lot of examples since I joined where players that weren't featuring too much, they weren't playing a lot and now they are playing regularly so..."

Auba recently recalled how the boss made the squad clean up a room at London Colney in order to get them together on his first day at the club.

Arteta's methods may be unconventional but we don't mind as long as they bring results. In his first 9 months in charge of Arsenal, Mikel has won the FA Cup and the Community Shield. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
