Arsenal fans 'in tears' as Mikel Arteta makes incredible Twitter video for supporters and shock promise for next year | The Sun

MIKEL ARTETA has sent a message to Arsenal fans ahead of the club's final Premier League game of the season.

The Gunners are set to finish second in the table following an intense title race against Manchester City, who cemented their spot at the top last weekend.

But despite falling short of silverware this season, Arteta has heaped praise on his players for their efforts.

In a touching video posted on all of Arsenal's social media pages, the Spaniard said: "Throughout my time here, I saw our club returning.

"Returning to a feeling we have all missed, because there is something special behind us. This is togetherness.

"So I want to thank you – all of you. Thank you to our players, who faced the season with passion and determination. When I watch our men and women training every single day, I can feel how much they want to deliver for this football club.

"Thank you to everyone working alongside them. All together, doing what they believe is right. You cannot imagine how much it helps the players, how much belief it gives them."

Arteta was also keen to applaud Arsenal fans for their support over the last nine months.

He added: "And thank you to all our supporters, everywhere. Without you, it doesn’t make any sense what we do. You are our energy, you are living the game with us. You always have been in our attitude, in our self-belief. In the demands that push each other to seek excellence.

"So that’s what we all must do. Demand more from each other. Support each other. Be connected in every action, in every win, in every single ball.
