Arsenal owner’s expectations putting more pressure on Mikel Arteta to deliver the goods

Posted by

After no goals and no wins in their opening two Premier League matches of the 2021/22 season, and with their next fixture against reigning English top-flight champions, Manchester City, it’s no wonder that Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, is feeling under pressure to deliver already.

When the Spaniard took over and promptly won the FA Cup, whilst dismantling all of the Premier League’s top teams in league or cup competition towards the end of the 2019/20 season, there was no hint as to what was to follow.

The 2020/21 campaign was an abject disaster for the north Londoners and, unfortunately for Arteta, that poor form has rolled over into the start of the current season.

He doesn’t need an incentive to really get into his players and ensure they improve, but he’s got one anyway, in the form of club owner, Stan Kroenke.

“He knows our expectations and those of our fans around the world are high and we are confident he can play a lead role in taking the club back to the levels we all demand,” Kroenke was previously quoted as saying by the Mirror.

Given the outlay the club has made in the current transfer window, it’s clear that they believe in Arteta’s long-term vision for the club, but the question marks remain as to whether he will be handed enough time to effect the change.

  1. A change instantly occurs and confirms, look at Chelsea same team since Tuchel, wins CL!

    Arsenal IS a top brand, to have an assistant coach named manager after 5 month, 8th place because we won a cup was shameful.

    To have him do se with no Europe football for 1/4 century worst, confirming shame.

    To keep it same simply retard & Lost, total sink. Pre-season terrible rzsultas against scottish teams were not enough to change coach.

    Worst ever start & 19th spot is not enough, nor City win & a Norwich draw to put us bottom will bé enough.

    We will be stock with Arteta & relegation til next window if that is not enough!

    Kroenke who has no clue of football seems to get concern & may get it, or he will lose way more with Arte’Edu duo!
