Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has revealed and claimed that “some people inside” the club have tried to “hurt” the team.
The Gunners go into the final day of the 2020/2021 season in ninth place and could yet qualify for the inaugural Europa Conference League if they beat Brighton.
It would provide a positive end to a poor campaign, during which Arteta claimed he was searching for a mole leaking information from the dressing room.
When asked what the best thing about this season had been, Arteta told a press conference: “The best thing has been to keep a team, a staff, employees and everybody together.
“In those circumstances when you are not winning and when there are so many people, some inside and some outside that are trying to hurt.”
Pushed on whether the “people inside” were still at the club, Arteta replied: “No.”
