Report: Arsenal's Arteta concerned about Maitland-Niles' Instagram activity
Mikel Arteta was concerned with the social media activity of Arsenal ace Ainsley Maitland-Niles, says The Mirror.
What’s the story?
According to the publication, Arteta was more worried about what the right-back put in his Instagram story than his future.
Maitland-Niles is unhappy after the club rejected a loan offer from Everton.
In a stunning move, the player took to Instagram to lament his frustrations at the club.
Maitland-Niles posted a short statement hinting he would like to leave the Emirates Stadium.
As a result, Arteta and Edu held talks with the ace and told him they want him to stay.
Arteta is not good enough for Arsenal amid Maitland-Niles report
The last 24 hours or so have been farcical, to say the least.
Reports surrounding Maitland-Niles highlight just how badly run the club is.
As a result of the latest news about Maitland-Niles, Arteta is out of his depth at Arsenal.
The Spaniard is clearly not the right man to take the Gunners through their rebuild.
His man-management has been shocking over the course of his reign in north London.
It’s not just the England international, who the former Manchester City assistant has fallen out with.
And Mesut Ozil also hinted at a bust-up with his tweet following the 5-0 mauling away to Manchester City.
You can have all the tactics in the world, if you maintain a poor relationship with your squad, you will always fail.
Arteta has burnt his bridges with far too many players to continue at Arsenal and needs replacing.
