Rio Ferdinand compares Arteta Arsenal team  to a “Promiscuous girlfriend”



Rio Ferdinand

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta “must look at the team as a promiscuous girlfriend” after their poor season in the Premier League.

The Gunners are currently 10th in the Premier League standings with 11 losses and 11 wins in 27 games illustrating their levels of inconsistency.

Arsenal followed up an impressive 3-1 win over Leicester City with a 1-1 draw at Burnley over the weekend and Ferdinand believes they should have taken all three points at Turf Moor.

“They should definitely have had a penalty, the decision was a disgrace, VAR has become a laughing stock, it’s ruining our game,” Ferdinand told the FIVE YouTube channel.

“But it doesn’t paper over the cracks at Arsenal. They had all the chances to finish the game off, they could have finished the game off well before.”

Ferdinand added: “If [Bukayo] Saka’s not doing it, Arsenal haven’t performed this year. But Arteta must look at the squad like a promiscuous girlfriend. He just must lack so much trust and faith in them. He can’t trust them at all, because he doesn’t know what’s going to happen at the moment.

“He could do the best team talk of his life but they’re going to go out there and do their own thing and it doesn’t seem to be coming together.

“The mad thing is I like Arsenal, I love some of the players there: Auba, Saka, Martinelli, Smith Rowe. I can go on and on with all these names. Partey, that’s another one, he’s never fit! He keeps coming back and breaking down!

“They’ve got good players there but for some reason, I don’t know what’s happening, it just isn’t coming together consistently at the moment.”

Arsenal will have to improve on their current form to increase their chances of qualifying for European football next season or even winning silver wear.
