ARTETA’S RETURN SHOWS ARSENAL WHAT THEY’RE MISSING

Mikel Arteta’s return to the Emirates will show Arsenal what they’re missing. It’s become a known fact that Arsene Wenger lacks leaders at his club – but, over the past few years, they’ve barely ever had their club captain on the pitch.

This season, Per Mertesacker has not yet made a single appearance. His predecessor, Mikel Arteta, managed just six league starts in his two years as club captain, while before that, then-skipper Thomas Vermaelen started only seven times in his final campaign before suffering a disastrous injury.
It means that, in Arsenal’s last 141 league games, their captain has started only 13 times. Continue reading

Manchester City assistant coach, Mikel Arteta, is reportedly the reason behind the bust-up at the Etihad as the Sky Blues defeated Barcelona 3-1.


In the wake of the defeat on Tuesday during the UEFA Champions League game, Lionel Messi and City players exchanged strong words at the stadium’s tunnel. Investigations reveal that the former Arsenal skipper was the chief culprit behind the incident.

Spanish radio station, La Cope claims that Pep Guardiola’s assistant provoked the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. The report says that while Messi was waiting just outside the referee’s room after the game, Arteta said: “Move along stupid, get yourself in your dressing room.”

Messi, who was already disappointed and even fuming due to the loss, reacted, shouting: “Come over here and say that to my face, stupid.”

Reports also point fingers at City’s Fernandinho and a section of City low profile backroom staff. As the rumours of Fernandinho’s involvement made the round, the player quickly disassociated himself.

“I just want to say that the rumours that are circulating in the media are absurd: I didn’t even have contact with any Barcelona players or technical staff after the game,” the player posted on his personal Twitter page. Continue reading
