‘Wenger Needs To Go’: Arsenal Fans React To Midfielder’s New Contract


Mikel Arteta has become the subject of a lot of criticism recently, with many fans believing that the Spanish midfielder is no longer good enough to be at the club. The main talking points surrounding Arteta are that he is too old to operate at an good enough level to contribute to the team, and that his legs are no longer what they used to be. This criticism has intensified since the summer transfer window slammed shut and Arsène Wenger failed to sign a proper defensive midfielder, meaning Arteta was left, along with Flamini, to cover the role.
