Former footballer and pundit Jamie Carragher has noticed that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is behaving like lunatic in this current campaign.
Speaking on The Overlap, Carragher discussed about Arsenal’s win over Manchester City in the Community Sheild. Gunners have improved their form under Mikel Arteta as they came very close to winning the Premier League Title last season.
Arteta has always been quite animated at the touch line during games. But Carragher states that one moment during Community Shield Final as the Spaniard was furious with referees decision.
The Former Reds discussed the matter and said :-
“I remember in the Community Shield and something stuck with me.
“I said I felt like I was watching Arsenal in the run in and it’s only the start of the season.
“ In Community Shield it was Arsenal vs City and I remember Arteta on the side of the pitch after 20 minutes was like a lunatic to the referee because he hadn’t booked a City player, and it’s still half a friendly, I know it’s a big rivalry but I thought that almost felt too intense for the stakes.
“It was like you have another 10 months of this and I feel like Arsenal, because of last season being in such a great position and they are not going to be in that position in terms of winning 50 points out of the first 57. I think it’s that much of missing out last season and they are that intense now.”
His behaviour might be in question, but his impact at the club has been massive. Under Mikel Arteta’s guidance , Arsenal have returned to Champions League this season after six years.
