Arsenal Chief Executive Vinai Venkatesham has backed Mikel Arteta to succeed despite a poor run of form this season
The former Gunners captain has come under fire for the team’s poor start to the season, but he has the support of Vinai.
“You have got a guy that loves this club and understands what it means to play for this club, and he obviously captained here. You’ve got a guy who is a real team player”.
“The team he’s formed with technical director Edu and also his staff is really strong. You’ve got a guy who is absolutely driven to succeed but doing it in a way that respects our history and traditions. I think with him we have got a really powerful individual.”
Arsenal are 11 points off Tottenham and they will hope to bounce back with a win against Burnley on Sunday.
