Ferdinand speech suggests Arteta has done something important at Arsenal

by Vibecity

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has proven to be a fairly divisive figure amongst Gunners fans.One criticism that routinely heads Arteta’s way is to do with his attitude towards certain players.Matteo Guendouzi reportedly fell out with the Arsenal boss, who in turn froze him out and offloaded him.Photo by Stuart MacFarlane/Arsenal FC via Getty ImagesLikewise, Mesut Ozil barely got a look-in and ended up leaving in January 2021.HITC’s New Kid On The Block – ERIC TVAnd at the start of the year, Arteta froze out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before offloading him as well.Arsenal fans continue to debate whether the 40-year-old had done the right thing in all three cases.The Aubameyang decision proved particularly controversial, given it left Arsenal seriously short up front.However, Rio Ferdinand recently posted a video which suggests that Arteta is actually doing the right thing.Ferdinand was talking about Manchester United’s current predicament, and he seemed genuinely distraught.“There needs to be fear”The Premier League legend spoke on FIVE following the Red Devils’ 4-0 hammering at Liverpool in midweek.Ferdinand highlighted how important it is to have a culture of discipline and zero tolerance for messing about.And he doesn’t feel this is prevalent at Old Trafford now.“A culture needs to be created, there needs to be fear,” he said.“‘If I step out of line here, if I go to a nightclub on the wrong day, I’m going to get butchered’.“By not only one of the senior players, but by one of the coaches, they’re going to find out because they’ve got their ears to the ground and people are willing to tell them.Photo by Stuart MacFarlane/Arsenal FC via Getty Images“That’s how it needs to be run. You go out in town at the wrong time, you need to be checked. I don’t know if that’s happening right now. Players aren’t even thinking ‘is this the right time to be moving and doing this on social media or with a commercial partner?’“It’s more like ‘you know what, no-one can talk to me, no-one’s gonna say nothing to me, (I) do what I want, it’s calm’.”“Top football teams with the right culture don’t work like that.”Arteta is forging a culture at ArsenalWith that in mind, Arteta’s ruthless approach towards players he didn’t feel fit the dressing room appears to make sense.The Arsenal boss appears especially eager to make sure that anyone he feels is – or could become – disruptive either improves, or they’re out the door.For the most part, the Gunners have been on an upward trajectory this season.Admittedly, a lack of strength in depth has caused problems, but that takes time.Now, with Eddie Nketiah firing on all cylinders, there’s a lot more optimism on the goal front too.While Arsenal have had their issues, a lack of discipline and culture certainly isn’t one, thanks to Arteta.On Saturday, Arsenal face United – that’ll be an interesting litmus test as to the Gunners’ current standing.If Arteta’s charges thrash the Red Devils, then this’ll prove how well Arteta is actually doing.
