Arsenal’s board makes a decision on Mikel Arteta’s future

Arsenal’s board has decided they will not sack Mikel Arteta regardless of the outcome of the north London derby.

The Gunners made a poor start to this campaign and three straight defeats in their opening league matches put pressure on Arteta.

It was a terrible way to start the season after they splashed £150million on new players.

The Gunners had been missing some of their key men in that run of games and have since returned to form after the international break.

Their recent fine run that has seen them win back-to-back league matches has impressed the club’s hierarchy.

They head into the game against Tottenham today with three wins from as many competitive games and The Daily Mail says that has bought Arteta more time.

The club has always trusted him to help them rebuild their team, but their poor start to the season may have forced their hands.

He is now set to get more time to help the Gunners become a top club again and there is confidence in the Arsenal boardroom that he can help them achieve their goals.

Beating Tottenham in the Premier League today would be big for Arsenal and it will give them even more confidence in their upcoming games, however, a defeat could be rather damaging.

  1. Hardly news worthy.
    Arteta can’t get any worse and Arsenal just can’t.
    We have seen in some games how good he can be and in some how bad , he’s still learning so are we to get him to the stage where he’s learned what he needs to and then let him move on to take another club to new height’s or are we going to let him take us.
    Give the guy a break and support him.
    I remember the days when Wenger was coming in and the stick he got , and for years they gave out about something about him , the rest is history.

  2. wise and mature decision, it will pay rich dividends in the years to come.Remember Sir Alex’s initial years of turmoil? At least our man won the FA within 6 months! Brilliant!!

  3. Can we hold off comparing Arteta to Wenger and Sir Alex? Those 2 are legendary figures in PL, it’s disrespectful to their accomplishments.

    Want to compare Arteta to another manager? Emery at Arsenal would be a fair and reasonable comparison. Nuno at Wolves and now Spurs.

    Arteta hasn’t even shown an identifiable style of play, I’m hopeful he’s the right manager, but need to see more from him.

  4. They didn’t start as legends. They became legends later because of their achievements. I don’t see why Arteta cannot emulate Arsene Wenger in the future. Seeing Arteta’s body language, any good observer can see him beaming with confidence. I tend to think it’s because his team has started to gel.

    1. Exactly the point. Arteta is just starting out, so quite a far reach to put him in same sentence with those two, especially Sir Alex and his trophy haul.

      Let Arteta build on what he has now, I hope he is successful, matching Wenger or Sir Alex would be gravy
