Arsenal board send clear message to Mikel Arteta about his future

Mikel Arteta

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has come under pressure following a run of four games without a win.

Arsenal are said to be very happy with boss Mikel Arteta and are relaxed about handing him a new contract, despite the fact the Gunners haven’t won in their last four matches.

The north London giants have fallen five points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool following a dismal run of form over the festive period and face a huge battle to stay in the title race.

Arsenal enjoyed a sensational campaign last time around as they led the table for much of the season before being leapfrogged by eventual champions Manchester City.

The Gunners then opened the current season by winning 11 of their first 15 matches and moved to the top of the table at the end of November.

But the wheels came off in December following a 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa. The Gunners went on to suffer back-to-back defeats against West Ham and Fulham after drawing 1-1 with Liverpool at Anfield. And Arteta’s side exited the FA Cup last weekend after losing to Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.

Arsenal could sack Mikel Arteta

Arsenal have faltered in front of goal recently and have been guilty of wasting a hatful of chances. And Arteta’s side have found the back of the net just four times in their last six encounters. But the poor displays don’t appear to be impacting the Arsenal board’s view of the manager.

According to Caught Offside, Arteta loves Arsenal and all parties are relax. The club are in no rush to hand the Spaniard a new contract,

With his current deal set to run until the summer of 2025.

Arteta has been in charge at the Emirates Stadium since taking over from Unai Emery at the end of 2019. And the 41-year-old, who guided Arsenal to FA Cup glory in 2020, has transformed his side in that time

As they are once again a competitive force in the Premier League title race after years of underperformance.
