One Arsenal player that Mikel Arteta has told to look for another team revealed

Mikel Arteta has informed Sokratis Papastathopoulos that he is surplus to requirements at the Emirates, according to Football London.

The Greek defender joined the Gunners in 2018, but he has struggled to impress Mikel Arteta since the Spaniard became the club’s manager.

He was initially played out of position as a right-back, but now that Arteta has more than enough options in that position, he has been told he can look for a new team.

The defender hasn’t played in any Premier League game since the restart, despite Arteta needing to rotate his team because of how quick and fast the games come.

The Gunners’ boss has made the team a better defending unit, and that has seen them earn huge wins over Liverpool and Manchester City in the past month, however, he also knows that he will have to improve his team to keep them competitive next season.

The club will welcome William Saliba back when the new season starts, and Pablo Mari is another defender whom the club thinks will become an important player.

However, there are too many centre backs at the Emirates now and Arteta will look to cut that down, starting with Sokratis.

  1. Arteta has not yet made a team to be better defending force. Besides that, the team is playing boring football just like the time of Unai Emery

  2. Sokratis was yet another poor buy for a Club, which seems unable to fathom what makes a quality centre back. Height, pace, positional sense,composure, we do not have one CB who possesses all these natural abilities.In the case of Sokratis, with respect to the man ,does he have any of these attributes?Let’s hope Saliba proves to be the exception .

  3. Big Mavs has all that, watch the UTD game again, top draw performance, just shocked he never got a look in after

  4. Yes Val, I too thought we had, at last unearthed a quality young CB, but unfortunately injuries have intervened and set him back .However he did well on loan last season and he may yet make it at Arsenal.Let’s hope so.
