Kevin Campbell insists Arsenal will have no issues extending Arteta’s contract

Former Arsenal star Kevin Campbell believes the Gunners are happy with Mikel Arteta’s job and they will have no problem offering him a new deal.

The Spaniard has been in charge of the club since the end of 2019 and he is spearheading a rebuild at the Emirates.

After trying Unai Emery following the departure of Arsene Wenger, Arsenal is keen to give the club some stability and they will back Arteta to turn its fortune around in the next few years.

To achieve that, he would need more time at the helm, and that means signing a new deal.

Campbell believes it is a certainty that he would continue at the helm at the Emirates.

He tells Football Insider: “The ownership are happy with what Arteta are doing.

“I know a lot of the fanbase are 50/50 on whether they want Arteta to carry on. It’s in the balance. That doesn’t really matter though. It is all down to what the owners think and see.”

He adds: “I’m 100 per cent sure he’ll get a new deal. Whether we qualify for the Champions League, Europe League or not, I think he will get a new deal. I think it’s a foregone conclusion.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arteta has done a good job as the club’s manager over the last few seasons and he can get better.

The Spaniard has made some ruthless decisions in ridding the club of poor players in recent transfer windows.

If he keeps adding the players that can help him achieve his goals, we would soon become a top-four club again.

  1. Its a no brainer decision
    if arsenal really finish top 4, he should definitely be extended, why fix something that is not broken? no one on earth would had told arteta to get EPL trophy this season or be runner-up. just no one, top 4 is the highest expectation for arsenal this season.

    2019/2020 season arteta bring arsenal finish 8th, 2020/2021 season also finish 8th. If this 2021/2022 season arsenal manage to finish top 6, a sign of improvement, thats should be enough to earn him new contract.

  2. incredibly fortuitous result, but 3 points nonetheless…of course, we were quite lucky that we weren’t facing a far steeper uphill battle considering the chances we afforded them early on, but the fact that we were able to ultimately prevail was much appreciated…there’s no doubt that our conversion rate must improve considerably if we hope to remain in this race for a European position…for those whom have stated a myriad of outlandish comments regarding our manager’s tactical maneuverings or the supposed performances of a large majority of our players, I guess you deserve a pass this time, as they were likely just a natural outgrowth of the euphoria that generally accompanies a last second victory…that said, make no mistake that, from an “eye test” perspective, this performance would still receive a failing grade, but the perseverance shown was certainly admirable and worthy of some celebration…as for re-upping, still TOO early to put pen to paper
