Mikel Arteta has given his post match interview and he is not a happy man.
A very disappointed Mikel Arteta has reacted to Arsenal’s loss to Olympiacos admitting it hurts. He spoke about the difficulty of breaking the Greeks down and lamented the missed opportunities.
He denied that the lads were complacent and felt that his team did enough to win the game.
He is clearly very disappointed and could not hide that. He was also asked about the chances of Champions League football and what must be done going forward.

I’m not a happy man for now my Arsenal team failed to qualify for the next stage.
The guys let us down. Complacency I believe was our undoing.
A big lesson for the team today. No team can be underestimated. Even Portsmouth in FA Cup can dump us out if we don’t play well and underestimate them.
I believe Arteta will learn from this himself and know how to fire his boys up in coming games and in the future.
We took the game far too easily and there was no urgency in our play. Also my biggest question is why did Martinelli not start, with Auba in the centre and Laca could be brought in later as a sub.
