Former Arsenal defender William Gallas believes Mikel Arteta has failed as a coach after failing to qualify the team for next season’s Champions League.
Recall that Arsenal narrowly missed out on qualifying for the competition last season in an extremely disappointing way.
Arteta took Arsenal to a fifth-place finish and the Europa League, which is significant progress from the previous season when they finished in eighth place.
And Gallas said such a result is not what the club want from the manager as it is still not enough.
Arsenal has made a lot of signings since December 2019 when Arteta took over, including Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City this summer.
Gallas says Arteta must produce, having failed so far.
“For me, last season he failed because he didn’t qualify for the Champions League. That is the minimum for Arsenal, with the story of Arsenal, they have to play the Champions League,” Gallas told Metro.
“For a big club like Arsenal, so for me, he has failed… I think maybe he will be in trouble.
“Now he won’t have any excuse if he doesn’t start well or qualify for the Champions League, he can’t have any excuses.
