After Arsenal’s summer purchasing spree, Mikel Arteta has no more excuses.
Arsenal spent almost £130 million in the summer transfer window, and manager Arteta is now under pressure to turn the club’s fortunes around.
Arsenal may have had a poor start to the new season, but following the club’s summer spending spree, Mikel Arteta has no more excuses for failing to achieve. Arsenal have spent more than £130 million overhauling Arteta’s underperforming squad.
Arsenal and Adidas have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which is based on the club’s motto of “Arsenal for everyone.”
The Emirates Stadium has welcomed Ben White, Aaron Ramsdale, Martin Odegaard, Nuno Tavares, and Albert Sambi Lokonga.
On the surface, this means Arteta has a team that is gradually resembling his own, with all five possible starts.
The Spaniard was already under fire after leading the Gunners to an eighth-place finish in the Premier League last season.
But that has only increased since the start of the current Premier League season, with the Gunners sitting at the bottom of the table after three games.
On the opening day, they were thrashed by Brentford, then dominated by Chelsea and Manchester City.
A coronavirus outbreak and injuries, according to Arteta, are to blame for the campaign’s poor start.
But, after spending so much money this summer to become the most expensive Premier League team, he can’t make any excuses after the international break.
He’ll be able to further integrate his new players during this time off, and he won’t have to worry about European football.
Due to a combination of excessive spending and a lighter workload than their opponents, club legend Nigel Winterburn issued a warning to Arteta as early as July.
“I don’t think any manager’s job is safe, and Mikel Arteta is no exception,” the former Arsenal player told GentingBet.
“Arsenal Football Club is having a great season, but it’s also a big season for the manager. Because I believe this will be his first ‘proper season,’ as I refer to it.
“Supporters are expected to return. He does, however, have time to work with the players. From the start of this season, there can be no excuses for me.”
Arteta has no more excuses after finishing the summer window as one of England’s busiest clubs.
