While many are already calling for the head of Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta following a really poor start to the club’s season, some others are asking for him to be given more time as he still tries to tweak things in the hope to save their campaign.
Part of those who are giving him their backing – and the most important figure of the lot – is the club’s owner Stan Kroenke. Despite Arsenal enduring their most terrible start to a season since 1981, Kroenke has hinted that the club will not be sacking Arteta but instead give him some more time.
Arteta has done his bit by delivering the FA Cup since he was appointed some months ago as a replacement to the sacked Unai Emery, but some believe that is not enough to buy him more time at the club.
Arsenal are not looking anywhere near a team that are going to be challenging for the Premier League title this season, and a top-four finish would even be considered as a huge success judging by how they are currently playing and their position in the league table.
Football London claims that the club will continue to retain faith in Arteta for now and will endeavor to give him some backing even in the transfer window once it reopens. According to the media, the club’s board is impressed with the fact that Arteta has already achieved this amount of success in such a short period and want him to continue as boss.
Arsenal’s technical director Edu spoke out recently and also gave Arteta his backing, claiming that the manager is doing a good job and that it will be very unfair of the club to not have patience with him and give him more time.
Edu says it is a long process and the club is willing to give the coach the time he needs to turn things around.
