ARTETA ON TIERNEY
Emirates boss Arteta has expressed his delight at Tierney signing a long-term extension – believed to be worth £110,000 per week – saying: “This is great news for us.
“As manager of the club, speaking on behalf of the coaching staff and the entire staff, it’s a pleasure to work with KT.
“His quality, energy, commitment and professionalism, not only on matchdays, but every day in training are always at such a high level.
“KT gives us so much extra strength both defensively and offensively and it’s great to know that he’ll be with us for the long term.
“Since his move from Celtic, his work ethic and quality has ensured that he is already one of most exciting players in the Premier League and a hugely important part of our team, both on and off the pitch.
“I know all the fans will join me, the players and staff in looking forward to seeing KT playing in an Arsenal shirt for a few more years.”
