Saka contract a priority for Arsenal, says Arteta

first_img The Gunners restart their season with a trip to Manchester City on Wednesday and it is likely to be a hectic period during the coming weeks. Arteta will need to juggle his squad but is keen not to place any undue pressure on the talented crop of young players at his disposal. He added: “They have to keep developing and one of the biggest challenges is always consistency. “They have been doing it for a certain period of time, for certain moments of certain games but to do it consistently for every three days for 94 or 96 minutes, that’s a different story. “In order to do that and develop the right way, they need the right players next to them, with the right mentality, with the right qualities, and with the right drive. read also:Arteta ready for challenge of Premier League relaunch “That’s what we have to do, we have to give them the right foundations in order for them to feel free to develop, without the extra pressure that they don’t need in these moments and they cannot carry on. “We don’t give them too much responsibility too early, because there is always a risk to burn them.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Saka has enjoyed a breakthrough season at the Emirates Stadium and has made 29 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and supplying 10 assists. He impressed as a makeshift left-back in the weeks leading up to the coronavirus lockdown, but is keen to revert to his more natural position on the left wing in the future. With Kieran Tierney now fit again, and Aubameyang generally deployed on the left flank, Saka could find starting opportunities more limited when the Premier League resumes on Wednesday. At the same time, Arsenal are also trying to tie down Saka to a long-term contract, with the 18-year-old’s current deal due to expire in 2021. The likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund have been linked with Saka, and Arteta acknowledged the teenager’s situation is one of the more urgent ones facing Arsenal. “We are trying, as a club, to finalise the deals that are more urgent and are a priority for us,” said Arteta. “The ones you are talking about [Bukayo and Aubameyang] – they are both really important, not just for now but for the future of the club as well and if the club has something to announce, they will do it in the right moment.” Mikel Arteta has confirmed sorting out a new contract for Bukayo Saka is a priority for Arsenal alongside resolving Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future.

first_imgUS-based Mexican restaurant chain Illegal Pete’s has raised its minimum starting wage for tipped, hourly paid employees to $15 (£11.77) an hour, effective from January 2019.This equates to a $6 (£4.71) pay rise since Illegal Pete’s last increased its minimum starting wage in 2015 to $9 (£7.06) an hour.The pay increase will mean that tipped, hourly-paid employees that join the organisation can earn an additional $1,000 (£784.40) a month or an extra $12,000 (£9412.80) a year on average.The restaurant chain, which employs 450 staff across two sites in Arizona and nine in Colorado, has also raised its other wage levels in line with this pay increase, including salaried management pay.The chain’s living wage initiative means that its employees are paid above local state minimum wage levels; this is set at $8.08 (£6.34) an hour in Colorado and $8 (£6.28) an hour in Arizona.This increase in pay will be delivered in conjunction with the existing benefits package at Illegal Pete’s, which includes medical, dental and vision insurance, a 401(K) pension scheme, paid time off, paid sick leave, food and drink and an organisation average of $4.72 (£3.70) in tips. Illegal Pete’s believes its benefits package brings the minimum annual compensation of a tipped employee to the equivalent of $46,000 (£36,082.39).Pete Turner, founder and president at Illegal Pete’s, said: “We began our living wage initiative in June of 2015, and we’re proud to say that we’ll hit our goal starting in January of 2019.”last_img read more
