Mikel Arteta: Piers Morgan urges Arsenal to sack Spaniard after Newcastle loss
The Gunners went into their game at St James’ Park knowing a victory would see them go back above Tottenham and into fourth with a game to go.
But they were second-best throughout as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat.
Ben White’s own-goal gave Newcastle the lead in the 55th minute. Bruno Guimarães then made the points safe with five minutes to go.
With qualification for Europe’s premier cup competition now unlikely, Piers Morgan has torn into Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta.
The avid Arsenal supporter has called on the club to sack Arteta, barely a month after they handed him a new contract.
Replying to Lord Sugar, he wrote: “I’ve been calling him out all season. He’s not good enough to be Arsenal manager, we should have gone for Conte when we had the chance.”
Morgan then concluded: “We should have kept Aubameyang, got rid of Arteta & hired an experienced manager who can manage world class talent & whose process we can actually trust.”
There is still a chance that Arsenal qualify for the Champions League, but they have to beat an Everton side fighting for their Premier League status and hope Tottenham lose at home to the worst team in the Premier League.
Arsenal need a minor miracle if they are to end their six-year hiatus from the competition.
