Arteta: “Football is not basketball”

The head coach of Arsenal explained why the team loses all the time.

Mikel Arteta spoke to reporters ahead of the League Cup quarterfinal match against Manchester City. The coach noted that his team simply did not have enough luck. This is one of the most important factors in failure. The specialist drew an interesting analogy with basketball.

“Football is not basketball. In basketball, you shoot 50 times and your opponent takes one shot. In this case, you win every game. It doesn’t work that way in football. You can give up 0: 1 in the same situation. We lost to Burnley without hitting our goal. ” explained the specialist.


The match against Manchester City will take place today.
