Mikel Arteta has been accused by an emotional supporter who thinks he is out of his depth” of converting Arsenal into relegation candidates this season.
The Gunners suffered a woeful run of form that saw them slump to three consecutive home defeats at the beginning of October with their last victory at The Emirates.
After losing five of their first 10 games of the season, they are now languishing in 14th position, where they have only scored the same number of goals.
Arteta is now under extreme pressure to retain his job ahead of the crunch north London derby clash between Arsenal and Tottenham, who are eight points clear of their bitter rivals in the top spot in the Premier League.
Even so, before Sunday’s match, an emotional Gunners fan called talkSPORT to confess that they can no longer be concerned with what’s going on at the top of the table because they are now a “relegation team.”
“In 35 years, I have never called for a manager’s head at Arsenal, going back to Don Howe, Terry Neill, George Graham, Bruce Rioch—none of them said the supporter.
But Arteta is out of his depth—I can’t believe this week he didn’t resign. He brought us from a top team of five or six to a relegation team.
And any Arsenal fan who speaks of us winning something this season is completely deluded. If we remain in this division, I’ll be satisfied!
In 11 months, he has made more errors than Wenger made in 22 years! He made disastrous mistakes.
In his entire career, we’ve had two strong results, and I don’t know why nobody else has seen that; we beat Man City in the semi-final[FA Cup]-brilliant performance-and we beat Chelsea in the final-brilliant performance.
Any other performance was null, absolute garbage.
“And if he stays, he’s in danger of getting us relegated.
“he’s got to go! “, said the fan.
