Arsenal board make summer decision on Arteta

Arsenal's board will stand by manager Mikel Arteta through this summer.

The Daily Mail says Arteta is under increasing pressure to transform Arsenal's fortunes following their feeble European exit to Villarreal, but is expected to be given until the start of next season.

The Gunners crashed out of the Europa League with a whimper, a result that virtually ended their hopes of qualifying for European football next season.

It is understood the Arsenal hierarchy are not convinced that an immediate change in their managerial position is necessary.

But the Gunners board are said to be disappointed at the way the club's season has developed during Arteta's first full campaign in charge and want to see significant improvements from the start of next term.
