David Ornstein has claimed that Arsenal will not sack manager Mikel Arteta as he outlined some from behind-the-scenes from the club.
The Gunners endured their eighth loss of the league season on Saturday after they lost 2-1 to Everton thanks to a Rob Holding own goal and a Yerry Mina header.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, the famed journalist believes the Spaniard has more time to turn things around.
Ornstein said: “I think Arsenal will stick with Arteta for a lot longer than this. They do not want to be chopping and changing manager, particularly as a lot of the problems at the club are much deeper, and are to do with the standards and culture at the club.” (via Sky Sports)
Should Arsenal sack Arteta?
It’s hard to have a clear opinion on matters surrounding managerial change because it’s proving an awfully difficult situation. In some ways, I’m glad not to be in the shoes of Edu and co, because boy do they have their work cut out.
Do you keep Arteta and risk this winless run going and plunge the Gunners into a potential relegation battle? Or do you sack him and struggle to find a long-term successor for a plan you had in place before you sacked the Spaniard? Either way, the hierarchy in north London have an extremely tough decision to make.
You may think Arsenal are too good to go down, but remember, these players are playing without an ounce of confidence. It’s not something that can be turned around with the click of your fingers. However, a win over the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea will go a long way to repairing some of the damaged egos in the side.
Sacking Arteta, who has been labelled a ‘million dollar‘ man before, now may not solve all the problems, but, can the board allow the club to go into the world of the unknown, a relegation battle? I’m not sure they can.
