Gary Neville slams Arsenal’s coach for screaming at Leandro Trossard

Arsenal’s set-piece coach, Nicolas Jover, was frustrated with Leandro Trossard during the Gunners’ 1-0 loss to Newcastle United yesterday.

Arsenal was struggling to get back into the game after going behind and consistently mounted pressure on Newcastle United.

This led to several corner kicks, and fans hoped they would convert them, but Trossard’s deliveries were not up to par.

Jover was seen shouting at the Belgian during those heated moments, and Gary Neville has criticised him for his reaction.

The former Manchester United player believes the coach should have remained calm and trusted the player to deliver after the work they did in training.

He said, as quoted by Metro Sport:

‘It was driving me crazy,

‘The set-piece coach down here, he was doing my head in as well.

‘He was screaming on like crazy like he was the manager. I’m not sure that helps. He’s screaming on at Trossard who was taking the set-pieces… sit down, he knows what to do, you’ve gone through it in the week, it’s up on the board in the dressing room before the game, and you’ve told him three, four times.

‘To me it felt like he was putting more pressure on Trossard taking the corners, which, to be fair, Trossard didn’t handle because his corners were appalling.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Yesterday’s game was frustrating for us and even fans did not like the balls Trossard was sending into the Newcastle area.

Jover probably did too much, but we will take whatever a coach does to help the team secure a win or a point.

    1. To be honest, he was one of the finest MU players, so he does know a thing or two about football and players emotions unlike those who sit in arm chairs in corporate boardrooms. Mikel and his coaching/scouting team need to take responsibility and graciously move out, the sooner the better.Top4 is under treat, good that Villa lost

      1. Getting rid of a manager normally requires the board to have an idea of a replacement. Do you have an idea?

        1. SueP, I’m not a member on the board so I have no clue but I do know Zidane is available or any other good manager would love to manage Arsenal FC. A new manager would be the best Diwali gift I could get and maybe we could restart our quest for Silverware. EFL cup is gone, 3 more are available, the longer Mikel is in charge, the slimmer are the hopes as he is too stubborn to admit that his signings – Viera, Havs, Raya, GabsJ , Partey are not reliable and so Nelson, Elneny whose contracts he extended.

          1. Happy Diwali IG. Leicester is my nearest city and the atmosphere in the Melton Rd is amazing- apparently the largest of its kind outside of India

            I’m not ready as you probably realise, to dispense with Arteta- quite the opposite. I recognise that the Raya and Havertz signings haven’t been popular across the fan base and it does annoy me that EN and RN have had bumper pay rises and both are not really good enough to start. Being at a club like Arsenal is a privilege and it just seems to me that neither player has the oomph to displace those in front of them. That said I think it’s far too early to be calling for Arteta to go. Early days in the season

            1. Also,
              Regarding Zidane, I’m not sure he’s ever expressed an interest in managing in England
              Managing at the highest level is fraught with risks and mostly end in the sack – often due to the over expectations of the owners and fans. We are privileged in England to have 2 top class managers in Pep and Klopp. Arteta is very good imo and came close last year. You mentioned ZZ but nobody else which shows to me that top managers are few and far between

          2. I’m sorry but this is not a reasonable position. If you are going to call for Arteta to leave you need to come up with credible alternatives.
            Also, suggesting we should replace the manager after just the first loss in the PL is equally absurd. Should we replace the manager after every loss?

  1. Coach failure Gary Neville is the worst bias pundit on TV, how he got that job is beyond belief. He is an embarrassment to English TV, a MR Bean of the pundit circle. Also the Mirror is so Anti Arsenal it is a wonder how the editor doesn’t sack their bias reporters for making up fake news and creating a witch hunt against Arteta. They keep saying he is ranting, when all the evidence state that he is correct in slamming the VAR dishonest decision, and the fact that VAR did not ask for the ref to look at the inconclusive video. The Mirror are a toilet paper news media company, and an embarrassment to the media circle and only prints bias anti arsenal statements.
