Mikel Arteta has provided an update on how Arsenal plan to deal with the fallout from Willian’s trip to Dubai. The 32-year-old was not called up by Brazil over the international break and travelled to Dubai, with the club reportedly unaware of the trip. Arsenal were only alerted to it after a picture emerged of the Brazilian standing alongside Nusret Gokce – more commonly known as‘ Salt Bae’ – at his Nusr-Et restaurant in Abu Dhabi. UK law dictates that people who travel to Dubai are not required to self-isolate, but Willian will have to return a negative test for COVID-19 before he is able to train again.
Mikel Arteta said “You keep asking me about more and more issues, Whatever happens internally with any issues or things we don’t expect we try to resolve them internally. That’s been dealt with, explained and we move on. I had a conversation with him and explained what I was expecting, There are a lot of personal factors at the moment from our side we need to be their shoes. A lot of players are having different issues like any public person out there. Sometimes they’re making decisions based on the needs, different moments or what people are expecting from them. Whether they’re right or wrong that’s something we have to discuss but it’s been dealt in the right way and let’s move on.”
