Key members of the Arsenal squad are reportedly unhappy with manager Mikel Arteta’s man-management as the Spaniard’s future continues to be in doubt.
After an abysmal start to the 2020-21 domestic campaign has seen Arsenal win just four of their first 13-matches, Arteta is currently faced with his side sitting 15th in the league table.
A recent string of home defeats mixed with poor individual performances at the hands of ill-discipline have piled the pressure on the Spaniard.
The Athletic claim members of the Arsenal squad are less than impressed with their 38-year-old manager’s man-management skills.
It has been claimed that several players were left unhappy after the former Arsenal and Everton midfielder allowed attacker Willian to feature against Leeds United last month despite the Brazilian travelling to Dubai without permission.
In addition to the discontent surrounding Arteta’s decision to stick with Willian, the squad are reportedly unhappy with David Luiz’s exclusion from the side’s 1-0 win over Manchester United at the start of November.
All is not well at Arsenal and with a crucial festive period now at hand, the Gunners will be desperate to finally climb up the table.
