Former Arsenal captain, Cesc Fabregas has hit out at manager Mikel Arteta’s critics for trying to get him sacked
Fabregas said the critics tried to get the Gunners boss sacked in 2021 but reminded Arsenal they ‘haven’t won anything yet’.
Arteta was on the verge of losing his job in the early days of his tenure but the Spaniard has now turned things around.
The Gunners are now sitting top of the Premier League table with the hope of winning the title, rising game after game.
Arsenal beat hard-fighting Brighton 4-2 on Saturday to open a 7-point lead over second-placed Manchester City.
“If we had listened to certain people at a time when Arsenal finished eighth and not doing that well, then maybe Mikel wouldn’t be there,” Fabregas told The Times.
But they gave him the time that was needed to develop his own style, his own players coming in, making his own thing.
“Mikel was my team-mate and he helped me a lot when I was very young, he knows the game properly. They haven’t won anything yet, but they are definitely going in the right way.”
