Arteta answers question about FA investigation into Gabriel and Henderson incident

Gabriel Magalhaes is at the centre of an FA investigation following an incident in Arsenal’s 3-2 win against Liverpool at the weekend.

The defender appeared to exchange words with a number of Liverpool players in the heated match, most notably Jordan Henderson.

After the game, the FA opened an investigation into the incident and Gabriel is reportedly the Arsenal man in the middle of the probe.

Mikel Arteta spoke to the press about it and refused to give out any tangible details.

When asked, he said via The Daily Mail:

‘It’s something I don’t want to touch. It’s in the FA’s hands and I’m not going to get involved in that.’

When pressed further, he insisted: ‘I don’t know. It’s something that I don’t decide. I think timings are really difficult to predict. The FA is in charge of the situation and we’ll have to wait and see.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Gabriel was a key player for us in that game and it was one of the biggest league games of the weekend in Europe.

Liverpool certainly didn’t want to lose, so we expected them to give us a run for our money.

We had to keep pushing, and that probably got under the skin of some of their players and brought more tension into the encounter.

Hopefully, the investigation will get to the bottom of what actually happened.

  1. To be fair when I hear Henderson talk, I can not understand most of what he is talking about, so how did Gabriel with broken English understand what he has supposed to have said?

    1. Not fair, I’m not English but I understand perfectly what Henderson says during interviews. Not accusing him of anything, but let’s allow for a fair investigation prior to start casting doubts.

  2. I much hope whatever HENDERSON said, it was not about skin colour.
    I pray he was not that stupid and so fervently hope it was not . But in life you never know, until you DO know, sometime down the line from now, I suspect! The fact this subject has been carefully avoided in all the media, as a possible cause of the dispute, alerts me to its distinct POSSIBILITY!

  3. Of course it will be about the skin collour….. some race easily throw skin colour into an argument when their back is against the wall

  4. Narrow&Ugly winnings are important for us and to football but must not be always or our fond of us&our hide out.

    I think we need to “tidy up more,getting hold of balls and not excessive play,minimize mistakes,play free flow to create rest for players,rotate onfield and fit players, and deploy more means of scoring goals” so that opponents wont capitalize on lack of goals as weak points of our team which may mean that we are tired or uncapable or our weak-point.

    Overall, well done once again!
