Arsenal Technical Director Begs Fans to Back Arteta
Arsenal technical director Edu has come out to appeal to Arsenal fans to believe and support Mikel Arteta despite the team’s recent poor performance.
Arsenal technical director who is by name Edu also insists results on the pitch is not reflecting on what he is seeing on the training ground. Arsenal lost 1-0 at home to Burnley on Sunday with Evra blaming Xhaka for receiving a red card in the game.
The result pushed Arsenal to the 15th place position on the English Premier League table. The Brazilian also said the club will not be splashing the cash during the January transfer window, he said Arteta has the backing of everyone at the club.
The Arsenal technical director was asking supporters to relax and not to worry, Edu also said in an interview before the Burnley loss: “Relaxing is too much.” “Just believe. Internally here, listen, we are doing well.”
“My main message is that we are not talking about only one person, it is unfair to talk about Mikel, or Aubameyang because he is not scoring goals, or (goalkeeper, Bernd) Leno because he has to stop the goals.
“It is unfair to talk about one person, we are a football team, we have to talk about ourselves, talk about “we” and not “him” so that for me is the main message.”
“The way I see things is very simple. It’s normal and easy to be driven by the results. But for me, the main point is when I see something in which I can see the future, see where we go, the way we’re building things, starting to see it on a daily basis.”
“So the way we work, the way we train, the way we behave internally, if you see the quality of the work, if you see the quality of the people, if you see properly what’s happening here on a daily basis, it’s nothing to compare with the results.”
