The Gunners have been reportedly warned against rushing into sacking their struggling manager Mikel Arteta.
Mikel Arteta’s inexperience hasn’t made quite an impressive and the most convincing start to life at the Emirates Stadium in his first full season in charge, despite winning the FA Cup last season.
Arteta is no doubt feeling the pressure, with Arsenal perhaps in need of someone more experienced to continue the journey with.
The Gunners had Arsene Wenger in charge for 22 years and it’s proven a difficult task replacing him, with Unai Emery also struggling before Arteta took charge.
Arteta was no doubt highly rated during his time on Pep Guardiola’s coaching team at Manchester City, and it seems Graham Hunter remains confident he will have a big career in management.
The Spanish football expert made the bold claim towards the Transfer Window Podcast that Arsenal could end up regretting sacking Arteta, as he supported to go on and shine at another club not long after being shown the door eventually.
“If Arsenal screws it up, and are infantile enough to get rid of Arteta, it’ll be about 6 to 8 months after that we’ll be saying, what a job Arteta is doing at whichever club he takes on next. He’s exceptional,” Hunter said.
We’ll have to see if Arsenal are patient enough to take this on board, but many fans will currently find it hard to believe after so many poor performances this season.
