Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has come out to say that he understands why Willian keeps getting criticized at Arsenal. He recently revealed that the criticisms the Brazilian has faced since he became a Gunner have not been unfair.
According to him, even if Willian has the ability to come good, the fans have no other choice but to criticize him for failing to meet expectations so far.
He added that everyone expected that ex Chelsea player to always be in the starting lineup, but his performances this season haven’t merited that.
His words, “I don’t say it’s unfair because expectations are really high in terms of the goals he can score, the assists he can create.”
“You expect him to be in the starting lineup, so it is normal that people write things about him.”
“What he is doing, the way he is training, the way he is working and the way he is pushing to give everything at the team, is what I demand. Whether he is more or less successful in the game is another matter. It will come, with the quality he has.”
