Mikel Arteta sack odds: Arsenal manager now odds-on favourite to be next Prem boss axed

Posted by

Mikel Arteta’s days at Arsenal could be numbered after the club’s latest terrible result in the Premier League.

The Gunners lost 2-1 away to Everton yesterday to make it seven games in a row without a win in the league, and potentially putting the north London giants in a genuine relegation battle this season.

Things have to change fast for Arsenal, so it’s unsurprising that Ladbrokes now fancy that it could be the manager who is sent packing soon enough.

Arteta is now the odds-on favourite to be the next Premier League managerial sacking, with the inexperienced Spanish tactician 4/5 to be the next to get the chop.

It looks like Arsenal’s big risk when they appointed Arteta has not paid off, with the 38-year-old only in his first job in management at the Emirates Stadium, having previously been part of Pep Guardiola’s coaching team.

It wouldn’t be an easy job for whoever Arsenal appoint, but it’s unsurprising to see the bookies recognise that he’s surely now in big danger of losing his job.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Arteta’s spell as Arsenal boss could soon be coming to an end after yet another poor performance from the Gunners.”

  1. I won’t regret if Mikel Arteta is sacked, and the club has delayed his sack coz this has always been open to the whole world due to man management, tacktical skills and team selection, things went off his hands at the very time he started having issues with the players, how can u freez out these talented players, William Saliba, Matteo Guendouz, Mesut Ozil, Lucas Torriera,
    You don’t trust ur players, u bench Lacazette, Emile Simith Rowe, u don’t give a chance to Nelson but u keep on playing these midyorkers, Nketiah and Wilock,

    Its time 4 Arteta to goooooooo with ur bad leadership and selfishness.

  2. What is wrong with the Arsenal board. Arteta is long due to be sacked since he is a disgrace. The board has paid dearly for choosing a rookie manager who has no track record. He was just a backroom coach at Emirates hiding behind the success of Pep. He is not a coach to manage a big team. Even championship teams will not take him. I cant wait for him to gooooooooooo!
