Arteta is concerned about what Bruce said about the way he was treated while with the Magpies.
"I was really sad after reading that statement from Steve," said the Spaniard. "You're talking about someone that's been in the game over 40 years that has managed over 1000 games and he's telling you with that experience that he struggled with that kind of abuse so I think we have to accept (that it's a problem).
"We can't take for granted that things are the way they are. No, we are here to improve them and change them. I think we have to think about it when one of the most experienced managers in English history is telling you something.
"For me, it's a very serious statement and we have to change that."
