Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta plays psychological warfare before the North London derby away match against Spurs (April 28) by praising Ange Postecoglu the opponent’s coach, said that he encouraged the team to play aggressively. Expect to have fun exchanging blows rather than defending with a focus on results.

The Gunners are currently chasing the English Premier League championship and therefore want to win every remaining game. Normally, if it is a visit to a team in the ‘Big 6’ group, Arteta will have his team play safe and wait for a counterattack. 

This joke was effective in visiting Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City all undefeated (all 3 games were tied). Therefore, it was a challenge. Spurs controlled the ball and put pressure on them. So that he can counterattack quickly, which is another great trick to counter the scales.

“Preparing for the North London Derby match as a head coach is more motivating than when I was a player. When you know you can give a gift to our people. It is very happy and fun. If you manage the game to win successfully,” the Spanish coach said. 

“So when the opportunity arises, do it. It is a matter within the range. I would like to succeed as much as possible. Try to make it come true.” 

“Postecoglu Spurs were amazing in what they did. Not surprised at all.”

“I’ve known that since he was in charge of the Australian national team. When I came to work for the Japanese club, I followed Celtic FC performance and he always gave me directions. Including your own identity clearly on what kind of team you’ll play.” 

“Love the way his team plays football. So I think he is a very good manager.”
