“In this business there is always pressure” Farke says Arteta will survive this testing time

Norwich manager, Daniel Farke has praised Mikel Arteta for his football brain and insisted that the Arsenal manager will ride through the current tough time he is experiencing.

The Canaries will play the Gunners this weekend in an important Premier League game that will see both clubs battle for their first points of the season.

Arsenal is currently rock-bottom of the Premier League, while Norwich is just above them in the 19th position.

After spending so much money in the last transfer window, the Gunners should be doing much better and the game against the Championship holders is one that they must win.

Speaking ahead of the match, Farke backs Arteta to stay and insists it is normal to feel under pressure as a Premier League manager.

“It is not my style to comment on the situation for other clubs or circumstances, all I can say about Mikel Arteta is he is a fantastic guy, we have met several times,” said Farke via The Independent.

“He has unbelievable football knowledge with unbelievable experience, who tries to bring his own handwriting on to this team.”

Farke added: “In this business there is always pressure, and Mikel knows it – especially as he has played for some of the best clubs in the world.

“He has handled this pressure as a player and believe me, he will not crack under any pressure as a coach. He is much too smart, intelligent and such a good person.

“Without judging the Arsenal situation, I think he will have a great career as a manager.”

Arsenal will have the likes of Ben White, Thomas Partey and Gabriel Magalhaes back for the match, so there really cannot be any excuses this time.

  1. Fake Daniel, mocking Arteta, feeding his ego; reality is total opposite.

    Arteta has no brain, a bully, but a warrior’s heart which means nothing without a wining plan.

    That takes minimum brain, humility, Logic, simplicity, common sense. Arteta has non of these faculty.

    Thankfully, unfortunatly Rowe may not play sent back from UK U23; injury or at risk.

    Means Arteta won’t play him & Martin to leave us with one DM player.

    Lack of balance has us lose crucial middle battle and team totally lost, no control…

    1. We precisly need a player DM to have a midfield defending and scoring, link with CAM.

      Unfortunatly we sold Willock and AMN who can add that B2B is never used, Arteta will pair him with Elneny who does not provide that, sent on Loan to actually make room for Niles to devellop & play.

      Let’s see what Arteta comes up with once again.

      It Is beyond obvious that Chambers must be play as CB, not risk both White & Gabriel coming from injury.

      Chambers Always been one of out best CB, in the team, then injured and for some strange reason, never brought back in.

      I do not rate White more than Chambers. Let’s see how fit he stays ans what 60M worth. Looks like a Pepe price tag!

      We cant sell them half of their values few month after.

      Edu & Arteta are destroying Arsenal. Kroenke is paying for his football complète ignorance, jerked by a board and management only here for paycheck.

      To be coached by Wenger made us Invicibles, to be part of this team doesnt automatically make you a top coach.

      To assist Pep doesn’t make Arteta Pep, takes brain to coach; Arteta doesn’t have any nor simple common sense..

      Great Captain and warrior doesn’t make you a coach

  2. Arteta will pair Partey & Elneny instead to play Partey with AMN.

    Or lokonga Elneny or Partey,. Instead of AMN who provides what none do; B2B!
