back to the pinnacle of glory. Mikel Arteta has unique personality traits. He is known among football fans as a person who acts very harshly and ruthlessly when competing, but at the same time has a high ability to adapt.

Another of his moral qualities is that he has little desire to disclose his personal and family information and, as far as possible, respects his privacy and does not disclose certain information about his personal life.

For example, not much information is available about his grandparents, or his uncles and aunts. This makes it difficult for curious fans.

But today we intend to divert our attention from the young coach's brilliant career, and instead focus on his family relationships, especially some interesting facts about Lorena Bernal, the charming wife and mother of three children of Mikel Arteta.

But these days Arteta, who took over at Arsenal in December from interim manager FredyLionberg, won the Copa del Rey with the Europa League quota to make up for some of his failures in the Premier League, which finished eighth in the season. It does not appear that he will be sacked from Arsenal any time soon and will have to relocate. Mikel and Lorena and their children now live in a luxury home in London.

Despite a busy schedule, Lorena is still able to pursue a successful career, attending classes with her two older sons, taking careof her younger child, and watching the Arsenal plays closely. The challenge may seem daunting, but as she says in an interview with Arsenal magazine, she was lucky enough to have her most perfect partner, Mikel Arteta, by her side.

Now he is more able to get away from football a little bit, even though football is a big part of his life and he thinks about it almost constantly," she says.

"Pursuing a personal career is not always easy, especially if you live in a foreign country and have children. I'm focused on family right now. I accept offers of work that take me away from home for one night, but I turn down any other offers. I have traveled to Los Angeles twice and reviewed some interesting projects that were offered to me there. In any case, I know that in the not-too-distant future, I will be able to resume my job, and Mikel will support me in that direction."

I received it and many people warned me that my husband had coronary heart disease. At first I was a little scared. I thought to myself, "My husband is infected and maybe my children and I were infected." "I was more concerned about all the warnings that were given."

"What we have been told and everyone agrees with is that this is not a serious virus. It is a normal virus and there may be some more symptoms, and some fewer symptoms," she concluded.
