Arteta expects good Everton reception

Published Add your comment

Mikel Arteta has claimed there is no reason for Everton fans to abuse him when he returns to Goodison Park next week, despite the manner of his departure to Arsenal.

Gunners midfielder Arteta ended six-and-a-half years as a Toffees player this season when he submitted a transfer request an hour before the August window closed. The lateness of the move prevented Everton from reinvesting the £10million they recouped until the turn of the year, something that may not have gone down well with some supporters.

Arteta said: "I really can't wait to go there, and I hope I'll get a good reception because I gave Everton everything I had in my time there and I love the club."
