It was a surprise, yes, Arteta said in the Swiss city of St. Gallen before his team’s first game in the Europa League tonight against FC Zurich.
“It’s always sad to see a coworker lose their job in this field. We know how this works, which is a shame. It makes me realize that we have a job where this is likely to happen a lot of the time.
“We have to get ready for it and enjoy the trip.” We have to make the most of every day because you never know what’s going to happen next.
Arteta was also surprised to hear what Bernd Leno said. The German goalkeeper said that “politics” made him leave the club before he moved to Fulham for £3 million this summer.
