because of his mistake and that he is a professional player.

Arteta told the Gunners'

official website

after seeing his team extend their continental adventure:

“I’m especially happy about Dani because he’s a player that lives this profession like the most important thing in his life, and when he made that mistake, if that would have cost the team, it would have been mentally really tough.

“That’s when you need players in the team like the ones we have with Auba and Bukayo creating and KT [Kieran Tierney] scoring the goal to save him. Out of a difficult situation we created a really nice moment.

“I'm especially happy for him because he really loves this game and he does everything in the right way to be as prepared as possible. You can see how he celebrates every single goal.

“He doesn't have a 10-year contract at the club, he's on loan and still feels and defends this club in the best possible way. I think someone like him deserves good things to happen to him in football.”
