Richard Keys is disappointed with Mikel Arteta’s post match gesture.


Arsenal played Brentford last Saturday at Gtech community stadium. The gunners defeated the hosts 1-0. German international, Kai Havertz scores the winning goal in the 89th minute of the match. Because of this win, Arsenal are now on the top of the league table. Moreover, if they play every game from here as their final game, there’s a high probability that they’ll be able to get hold of the premier league silverware this time. We can see the importance of this win by witnessing Mikel Arteta’s gesture towards the game winner Kai Havertz. The coach took the player with him and matches towards the visiting fans to make sure that the German international gets the praise he deserves. However, Richard Keys is disappointed with Arteta’s gesture. The English sports presenter believes that the Spaniard’s gesture at the end of the match was completely biased. He believes that the one who should be getting the praises should be the England international goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale.

” I’m not a big fan of what Arteta did after the win against Brentford. It’s more like that he was justifying the price he paid for Havertz. What he should’ve done instead was to take Aaron Ramsdale in place of Havertz. The coach has turned the goalkeeper into a nervous player. I hope Ramsdale switches to a better club in the January transfer window.” – Richard Keys said.

Although Richard Keys is disappointed, it’s something that doesn’t needs much attention.

As per goonertalk, Only Mikel Arteta and Arsenal fans know the amount of pressure that Kai Havertz was being subjected to after his arrival at the club. Moreover, £65 million price tag worked as an added pressure for the German. The player had to perform well in order to justify his price tag. Therefore, scoring a winner in the dying moments of the game is a much needed confidence booster both for the player as well as the coach. They shouldn’t be worrying about other’s opinions. Furthermore, Arsenal are now at the top of the league. They can accomplish their premier league title dream if the player keeps performing like this.
