Video: Under-fire Arteta backed to turn things around

Simon Jordan has told his listeners at TalkSport that Mikel Arteta deserves the time to turn things around at Arsenal, with his team having failed to win four of their last five Premier League matches.

The Spaniard took over as manager back in December, and made a huge impact in his opening months in charge, with some claiming to see an instant improvement from the players.

Arteta went onto lead his side to FA Cup glory, beating both Manchester City and Chelsea in the latter stages, therefore earning his side entry into the Europa League, but his side have really struggled in recent weeks.

While questions are definitely being asked of the inexperienced boss at present, Jordan isn’t worried about the long-term as long as Arsenal do not make any rash decisions.

Does Arteta have what it takes to overturn our torrid form at present? How much slack will the club be able to offer him?

  1. Arteta needs to stop telling our players to stop pointing and playing backwards to keep possession of the ball. It is all too common a theme, he must tell them to play it safe first and not play forwards because it is evident watching our team we play safe before we take a risk playing it forwards. We have players free to play a ball forwards and someone (mainly xhaka) points or shouts to play it back but lots are to blame as well. It creates negativity and makes us negative. It isnt a good look and it isnt a good way to play. Sort it Arteta, its shizzle.
