​Arsenal manager Arteta defiant after Europe setback: I can still do this job

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta still believes he is the right man for the job.

The Gunners are out of the Europa League at the semi final stage, drawing 0-0 with Villarreal at home and going out 2-1 on aggregate.

The result means Arsenal will be without European football next season for the first time since the 1995-1996 campaign.

Arsenal are ninth in the Premier League, out of all the domestic cups, and now out of the Europa League as well.

When asked post-game by reporters if he was still up for the job, Arteta said: "Yes."

He went on to say: "I wouldn't be sitting here if I didn't [think I could].

"You will see it. It is not about talking, it is about showing it on the pitch."
