Former Premier League manager emerges as a top target to replace Arteta

Mikel Arteta appeared to be the manager that Arsenal has been longing for when he ended his first half-season as Arsenal’s manager by winning the FA Cup and the Community Shield.

His spell as the club’s boss has now become a struggle with the former midfielder’s team winless in their last three games, and they have scored in open play just once in their last six league games.

This poor run of form has led to speculation that Arteta might be sacked soon.

While the club hasn’t openly spoken about his future, rumours have already started linking several other managers with his position.

The latest is coming from the Italian news outlet, Stadiosport which claims that Arsenal is looking to fire him soon if things don’t change, and they have made former Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri a prime target.

The report claims that Arsenal’s loss to Wolves in the Premier League at the weekend set alarm bells off in London, and the Gunners now consider the club’s run of recent results unsatisfactory.

Sarri won the Europa League with Chelsea in 2019, coincidentally, he beat Arsenal in the final to win the trophy.

It is probably too early to start to talk about sacking Arteta, but the Spaniard has to know that he needs to get it right sooner else, he’d force the club’s hands.

  1. Some pressure is good in my opinion, more than that he himself would have been expecting such news to come up. Hope he is prepared for it.

  2. Now that’s the coach I want!!!

    I know most of our fans are clouded with hatred and this makes them not think straight.

    MAURIZIO SARRI is top of pyramid for me. He’s capable of sustaining us at the top.

    The other free managers, Allegri etc are just JOKERS.

  3. I dont think Arteta should be sacked this early. Many have compared him to Unai, others suggesting that Arteta might be worse! While I agree and respect such opinions, I feel it is uncalled for especially when names in the ilk of Sarri are floated as alternatives. That would be a jump from the pan into the fire. Pochetino? May be or even better, I would have loved. Away from dreams, I must state that I thought, and do still believe that Arsenal made a blunder in appointing Arteta manager. But going forward, I call for patience, this guy is learning and that is what I feared from the start. He will certainly make more gambles before he masters the trade. My problem though is why he can’t find reason to change his insipid tactics. Does he watch his games? More pain awaits.
