Arsenal midfielder all but confirms Emirates exit


Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has revealed that today's FA Cup final against Aston Villa might be his last game for the club.

The 33-year-old struggled with injuries this season and lost his regular place in Arsene Wenger's line-up.

And speaking ahead of the final, the Spaniard admitted that he will respect "any decision" taken by the club.

"I have been training with the team. It is up to the manager now to decide what he wants to do," Arteta is quoted as saying by the International Business Times.

"I will respect any decision. Obviously, everyone want to be involved in a final and what that means. So we will see what happens.

"I will discuss my future after the final. It has been a strange season from me since November, with my injury.

"I have had some really tough times but I have learnt a lot. It is nice to see things out of the barrier and have a different input from outside, instead of being on the field. But my aim is to be on the pitch as much as I can.

"I would love to [stay but] the indication is that we are both very clear of what we want and we will announce something after the final."
