Video: Arteta quizzed on his future a year on from Emery’s sacking

Mikel Arteta has been asked if he fears losing his job exactly 12 months on from Unai Emery’s sacking from Arsenal.

The club’s 2-1 loss today means that the club now has only four points from their last six matches in the division, leaving them down in 14th place in the Premier League table.

Pressure should be on the coach to turn things around, but as you will see in the video below, he seems calm under the circumstances.

Does Arteta seem calm, or uninterested like his house isn’t on fire?

  1. a dizzy fighter totally KO, makin no sense. day i decide be coach, new be scacked 1st day, month or year, haha. i try do my best for club, become better and better coach, haha…

    He is laughing in such a tragic time for our history, completly KO, dizzy,.

    it is what i feared, see him ridicule the way he is and sacked…

    I guess, this is it for Arteta, or after Spurs or after Saints…We be stock and burried bellow 15th by then.

    lucky 17th are behind enough but climbing…

  2. I’ve been saying for weeks that Arteta is over-controlling and the players cannot express themselves. It’s a lack of experience, look at Brendan Rogers at Leicester…he lets the players dance. We run like robots but don’t dance. Remember all the players we had who had the ‘Je ne sais quoi’, the magic. Now we have players who have nothing left. Sorry but the inexperienced Arteta has squeezed the dance and life out of them. And Arteta holds grudges. Guendouzi, Ozil, Socratis and others.

    1. I agree with what he did to Ozil, i dont agree with how he treated Gouendouzi, Torreira, AMN and Martinelli when he came in. Socratis was never that good he should get a game but surely ok for EL. I dont agree with the treatment of Saliba at all and i dont understand the signing of Willian at all and how he is playing now. I didn’t agree with the goalkeeper circumstances, selling Martinez and replacing him with a rookie keeper and didn’t understand Soares and Mari signings but all of that is me or my opinion. What it boils down to is those situations and many many more are Artetas choices, which have in the fullness of time not worked out for the best. He is obviously very talented in many areas but running a football club may not be one of them, time will tell. For all he did last season, which was fantastic under the circumstances, we are going backwards at an alarming rate under him and his appointed backroom staff. Whatever we say he has done in the plus and minus, he has failed miserably to sort out our Premier league form and that is damning.

  3. Emery is a coach, a good one who had no time nor players asked after finishing an inch from CL in order to have that extra push to make it! Partey first!

    Sacked lat this stage of season, after he managed to pull with an incomplete team in Wenger transition too…

    He is fighting for Liga title, at 3rd spot!

  4. Arteta must first stop the victimization of the players Arsenal bought under Emery reign (Pepe and Saliba in particular). Instead of looking to bring players on very high wages like Coutinho and Isco to the club, who are old players that have passed their best like Willian ,Arsenal should only contract young talents like Szoboszlai and Aouar,whose wages are a lot less and build for the future. Arsenal must sell or give away cheaply the following players in the January transfer window, Willian, Sokratis, Mustafi,Kolasinac, Ozil, Mari and Chambers. Also Lacazette, Guendouzi and Luis should be sold too , so that Arsenal can start the rebuild. More academy players need to be promoted to senior squad. Arteta must focus on the attacking aspects of the game. Just as Arsenal gave Arteta an opportunity as head coach and now manager, so must he give Saliba opportunities to play. Arteta without experience got the job and now he is sabotaging the future of (Saliba) one of the best young talents in Europe.,talking about transitioning, that he (Arteta) himself needs.

    1. It started with the wrong team selection. This is what happens when you do not put your strongest team out there.

      I think we’ve seen enough. Ozil Willian Elneny Luiz Laca can be replaced with good players.

  5. Arteta should go learn his trade somewhere else. Even a blind person can see that the guy is failing. Its not about buying players, but about the freedom that the players have in expressing themselves. Arteta acts like an army commander. He also lacks the knowledge to manage a team of that magnitude. I don’t personally blame him, but he’s been given a job that’s too big for him.
