Mikel Arteta reveals Arsenal superstitions during Premier League title push: ‘I don’t change my clothes!’
Mikel Arteta has revealed his superstitious ways force him to wear the same clothes if Arsenal are on a winning streak.
Arteta is renowned for his attention to detail and that extends from the training ground to his wardrobe.
The Spaniard has explained how he wears the same outfit if Arsenal are on a winning run, but he will change after a defeat.
Arsenal are currently five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League after winning their last three games in a row.
“Yeah, it is very methodical. I am a very methodical, routine person,” Arteta told the Daily Telegraph during a wide-ranging interview.
“When we are winning, I don’t like to change my clothes, I like to maintain exactly the same jumper, trousers and shoes as before. If we lose, I change to something different.
“I think at a high performance level, you have to be consistent, things are demanding, you want to be detailed and precise. But at the same time you need to leave some room for creativity. I love that mixture.”
