Arsenal board make final decision on Mikel Arteta’s future

Posted by

Arsenal have reportedly decided to stick with Mikel Arteta as their manager, despite the team’s poor form this season.

That’s the final decision of the club board, according to Fabrizio Romano in his latest column for Benchwarmers, as he looks into a number of managerial situations as we near the end of the season.

Arteta is surely a pretty lucky man to still be in the Arsenal job after such a poor campaign, but the inexperienced young Spaniard has long been highly rated as a coach and has perhaps done enough to convince club bosses that he’s worth sticking with for a bit longer.

Arsenal did show some real promise when Arteta first took over last season, with the Gunners winning the FA Cup final after some strong big-game displays to get past Manchester City and Chelsea in the semi-final and final, respectively.

However, Arteta will surely be disappointed with how his second season has gone, and there will surely be pressure to improve next term.

Romano also has some interesting updates on the Real Madrid and Barcelona jobs, plus Antonio Conte’s future at Inter Milan – you can read his column in full by clicking here.

  1. Putting off the inevitable without a forward plan…no doubt.
    Arteta is clearly out of his depth and will start making the same old excuses as soon as next Season starts to unravel.
    The current squad…whilst not the best…as we know…is a lot more capable than performances have illustrated under the so called “Manager”.
    Bringing in new players and confusing them with perpetually changing tactics and formations will have the same effect as the past Season.The team will continue to underachieve and fans will also continue to suffer the consequences.

  2. I have watched all the games which Arsenal lost during this campaign especially to average teams. Those teams relied on counter attacks to dominate us.
    Arteta didn’t know how to deal with this because it happened repeatedly. If he doesn’t change his tactics that make the team so vulnerable to counter attacks, nothing will change.

  3. what will it take for the board to sack this clown, i am not excited about next season, the league does not lie the lowest tally of goals at home since the 70s the most home defeats picking willian arteta is not lucky this club is run like a biz we need to come together and do a mas boycott the owner does not care he should sell to eke now

  4. Let’s arteta one more chaoce at least first quarter of next season if no improvement he shown the exit door.

  7. By standing with Arteta, we will start the season badly, and not be able to make up, once he is sacked next season, which he will be. So all we are doing is delaying the inevitable. feel sorry for the next coach, because he will need to play catchup.
