“For me, he needs to stay and the club need to back him” Arsenal legend backs Arteta

David Seaman has backed Mikel Arteta and says that the Spaniard is doing the right thing to turn Arsenal’s season around.

The Spaniard has come under pressure in recent weeks after the Gunners embarked on a poor run of form.

They have remained close to the relegation zone in their last few games and their 2-1 loss to Everton the last time out was their seventh loss in 10 league games.

There is growing pressure on Arsenal to get rid of the Spaniard and replace him with a manager that can turn their season around.

However, Seaman says that Arteta is doing the right thing and what Arsenal needs to do now is to back him in the transfer window instead of sacking him.

He says that the Spaniard can do the job and he probably just needs to sell some of his current players to make room for some better players to join his team.

Seaman told PA Sport, as reported by Mirror Football: “I like how he speaks, and my friends give me great reports of what he does at the training ground.

“For me, he needs to stay and the club need to back him in getting the players he wants.

“At the moment, there are a few players at Arsenal that maybe need to leave to create funds to get better players.”

  1. Not at all a surprise that our greatest ever keeper and a man well known for keeping his cool and being a considered man should speak such sound sense. If only more fans had his common sense but sadly a great number do not.

    1. I would remind you Captain Mainwaring this is the same person who satetd only last week that Arteta had made a mistake in not including Mesut Ozil in his squads. That PAL was speaking sound sense

  2. Seaman likes the way Arteta speaks? Seaman doesn’t talk like Arsenal legend. What difference did the players that he signed made? It’s really insignificant contribution to the team. Meaning he signed wrong players or he doesn’t have the capability to sign good players

    1. People forget, Mustafi (Mustafi!?) was playing really well at the end of last season (and hasn’t done much wrong since the start of this one). Given he looked a broken man before MA joined, it should tell you MA can have a positive affect.
      One signing made under MA was Gabriel. Aside from the red card, he’s been excellent.
      Willian has been dreadful and Soares underwhelming (but not bad as a backup RB). Mari looked really good before the injury though and we’re still waiting to see how much impact Partey can make.
      Overall the only really poor signing has been Willian, but that’s surprising because he’s been at the very least a decent EPL player for years (usually a very good one).
