Mikel Arteta was quizzed on whether he could see positives without European football, but is more happy about having a pre-season to work with his players.
The Spaniard took over as coach in December 2019 before the Coronavirus pandemic put a halt to football around the globe, and he was denied a credible pre-season due to the limited time and difficulties travelling due to restrictions.
Arteta is now looking forward to enjoying a pre-season with his team, where he can hopefully put in the time with his squad to properly instil his ideologies.
