Arsenal midfielder Arteta not worried entering veteran phase

Mikel Arteta says he feels as strong as ever at Arsenal.

The veteran midfielder will turn 32 next month.

"When you get to know your body and you have more experience, you are able to learn and read the game better," Arteta told Arsenal Player.

"It makes it easier for you and this is probably the time when I'm enjoying my football most, so I want to carry on. For me the age is only a number, I feel very good.

"There will be a day where you start to drop but for me personally now, if I can play every three days, I'd rather do that."
