'For goodness sake': Richard Keys doubles down on Arteta criticism, says Arsenal boss is 'endangering' players
Richard Keys isn’t Mikel Arteta’s biggest fan and he’s been at it again in slating the Arsenal manager for his behaviour at Old Trafford yesterday.
As we reported at the time, Keys took to Twitter to slam the Arsenal boss for his antics on the touchline as Arsenal lost 3-1 to United. Keys picked out how the Gunners boss was constantly out of his technical area barking instructions.
And speaking on the same issue once again today, Keys has doubled down, insisting that something needs to be done to stop the Arsenal manager.
“Another subject that we’ve previously mentioned – when is somebody going to tell Arteta he’s endangering the well being of players by marching up and down the touch line? The technical area is placed away from the pitch for a reason,” Keys wrote in his weekly blog.
“Someone is going to get badly injured if they crash into him. Why is he allowed to break the rules and no-one else is? Look at this picture from OT. He spent most of the afternoon here – in front of the 4th official for goodness sake.”
Arteta and Keys are not exactly best of friends as it is. The former Sky anchor has criticised the Spaniard before, while he also took issue with Arsenal’s ‘over celebrating’ a few weeks back.

Surely if you’re Mikel Arteta you don’t just let this sort of stuff just go on? It’s becoming almost weekly that Keys seems to find time to rip into the Arsenal boss for one reason or another.
Of course, Arteta might just feel it’s not worth giving Keys the time of day. That would be an admirable stance but it wouldn’t half be good fun to see the two go at it live on air.
