Is Mikel Arteta risking his job by playing Havertz in every game?

Hansi Flick, the coach of Germany’s men’s football team, was fired last weekend. Moreover, he is the only one ever who has been fired from that job.

Although his sacking was the result of a string of terrible performances, from the devastating World Cup exit from the group stages to the 4-1 loss to Japan the other day, others think it was linked to the sackings of Frank Lampard, Thomas Tuchel, and Graham Potter. There’s a conspiracy notion that all of these coaches trusted Kai Havertz and never gave up on him, even when he wasn’t at his best, and ended up losing their jobs as a result.

Mikel Arteta of Arsenal is similarly demonstrating unconditional belief in Havertz, starting him in every game despite requests for him to be dropped due to his inability to perform.

Should Mikel Arteta be concerned about losing his job if he continues to rely on the German international?

I doubt so, because there are another ten other players on the pitch who will constantly battle for the Spaniard. Even so, the Kai Havertz situation must be resolved. Gooners can be patient, but their patience may run out if the 24-year-old fails to perform at his best but continues to be used ahead of alternative options such as Fabio Vieira.

Havertz should repay Arteta’s faith in him or risk being benched, since I believe the Arsenal manager is brave enough to make difficult decisions that will benefit his team.

  1. Not sure it was only about Havertz. You can make that claim about almost any player who has seen several managers sacked in his team.

    Havertz though needs to be dropped

  2. Yet ANOTHER, albeit a very brief piece, about Havertz, though its all been said before, MANY TIMES.

    Can I therefore plead to all who contribute JA articles, to find something ORIGINAL of their own to write!!.

    I get bored at reading the same old articles, almost word for word, that have been written MANY TIMES before. By NOW, EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYONE ELSES OPINION OF HAVERTZ.

    So can we now please either give it a rest OR at least find something DIFFERENT about HAVERTZ TO WRITE?

  3. Arteta can not be dismissed for Havartz’s poor quality of football, but poor results will put him in danger of being let go.

    Havartz must be brought in after the team has secured the required results. He will be doing so without any pressure and will enjoy his game.

  4. YES HE IS…..Someone just mentioned Kai Havertz in the same sentence with Thierry Henry. Wow! It may have taken Henry 12 games to score his first goal, but he was not pushed into the starting lineup in every game, and he was not as useless as KH. Why did we even get rid of Willock or Eobi, we end up with Havertz and £65mil broke?

    1. Very true. If Arteta’s sacking is good for the club and its glory- so be it. No individual is bigger than the club or the fans who pay their hard earned money to watch this utter useless player on the pitch. I’d like de Zerbi, his teams are scoring goals for fun (except WHU) while we struggle and wait for some luck in the stoppage time.
