Arsenal recently suffered from a bad streak of losing and drawing, but instead of replacing Mikel Arteta, the English side put their faith in him and has planned for a long-term future with the Spaniard.
It will be understandable if Arsenal sacks Mikel Arteta and give the power of managing at the North London club for someone else. However, the former undisputed champions of the season 2003-2004 decided not to do so. At least, they have not come up with that decision right now.
They still put their faith in the former captain of the club.
Arteta has been promoted from head coach to manager, and he has been working as a manager for 95 days. It was the similarity between Arteta and his former coach, Arsene Wenger who was also the manager and the coach of Arsenal at the same time.
But Arteta was not Wenger, neither he was as good as the former coach of Arsenal or as experienced as Wenger. The Spaniard is a rookie of the coaching world, and giving him the power of a manager was a decision made in the rush of Arsenal.
They wished that Arsenal under Arteta management could once again bloom and rise as one of the most outstanding sides of English soccer. Sadly, after the promising FA trophy last season and the winning in a Community Shield match, Arsenal of Arteta came back to the ground and realized the fact that perhaps, Arteta was not ready to be a manager yet.
Some chaotic result recently such as the defeat against Burnley last week rang an alarm bell at the position of Mikel Arteta. Arsenal essentially can change the coach if the result keeps sliding.
Arteta will have four upcoming displays against Everton, Southampton, Manchester City (in the EFL Cup quarter-final), and Chelsea (in the Boxing day) to prove his class as a manager. But even if he walks out from these matches with a good result, Arteta still needs a busy transfer in order to make Arsenal great again.
Some players will definitely be put on the transfer list, and it is inevitable to see the departure of Granit Xakha who has disappointed Arsenal times after times. It is so painful to acknowledge that such a national captain like Xakha keeps suffering from silly mistakes several times.
Selling the Swiss International star and Arsenal can receive a decent refund for their reconstructing investment.
Other players included in the transfer list are Alexandre Lacazette, Dani Ceballos, Mohamed Elneny, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Sead Kolasinac, and Mesut Ozil.
Shkodran Mustafi, David Luiz, and Callum Chambers are the other stars that Arsenal want to sell in the upcoming transfer window, and the reconstruction of the Gunners will be a wild one. And as it has been said earlier, Arsenal wants to have Arteta involvement in that plan, and the Gunners can approve a big transfer budget for the Spaniard.
Theoretically, Arteta can have as much as 80 million euros for shopping in the Winter, and if he uses it wisely, that fund can solve so many things.
Arsenal can have a long-term replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who is already 33 year olds. They can also purchase replacements for Luiz, Ceballos, Ozil, ….
And in the end of the day, Arsenal will have big plan for Arteta as long as he could walk out from the next 4 fixtures with a good result. On the other hand, we might have to say good bye to the Spaniard after the New Year Eve.
