Arsenal’s training ground remains closed amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with no date set for their return.
Arteta himself felt the full effects of the coronavirus after being one of the first football figures to be struck by the disease in England.
Now recovered, the boss of the Gunners aims only to succeed with his team and presented his plan for the weeks to come.
“There are different aspects that we have to try to maintain,” he told Football London. “One is health and that’s the most important for sure.
“We are just trying to cover all the necessities that the players, the staff and the employees need to maintain the club with healthy people. It is the first and it is our responsibility. ”
“The second is the physical aspect. They all have programs and they all have individual work to do what they really do and really try to keep themselves together so that they can prepare when we have to come back to play. ”
“The third is the mind. There is the psychological support they need, which we give them, and also I give them a lot of homework because I have reviewed everything we have done since I joined. ”
The Spaniard has worked diligently, even in isolation, keeping in regular touch with his staff and preparing for his team’s next matches for their eventual return.
Arsenal have undoubtedly progressed under Arteta since their appointment in December, and are still hoping for a top four this season.

Arteta added: “There are things we need to continue to do, improve and develop, and individually, they really appreciate the challenge.
“We could have a few coaches after this virus, or at least a few players who are ready to go down that road because I think they really appreciate the process. ”
