‘Unleashed His Inner Sir Alex Ferguson’ ‘They Need To Start Listening’ Arsenal Fans React As Lacazette Reveals Arteta’s Fury

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta would have learned a lot about his players in last night’s 1-0 win over Leeds in the FA Cup third-round tie. They were not at the races in the first half and let Marcelo Bielsa’s side run rings around them.

However, the Gunners were a different team in the second half, and asked what inspired the improved display, Alexandre Lacazette revealed that Arteta’s angry half time team talk played a key role:

“The manager shouted a lot (at half-time). He was not happy because we knew they’d play like this and we didn’t respect what he had said.”


Fans on Twitter are happy to see that Arteta is prepared to challenge his players:

The fact is, though, you shouldn’t need a rocket from the coach at half time to perform at your best. There is a complacency among some of the players that Arteta will want to stamp out quickly.

The Spaniard is looking to set a certain standard in terms of both work rate and performance and the first half against Leeds was below what he expects. Hopefully, he won’t need to resort to the hairdryer treatment on too many occasions in the future.
