Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta needs time at the club, Gilberto Silva has said.
Gilberto Silva recently revealed that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also needs more help from his team-mates to rediscover his good form.
According to him, patience is needed for the 38-year-old coach to complete his long-term project, and he has been very impressed with his overall philosophy since he was appointed.
He added that Arsenal fans need to trust the manager’s project because the club made the decision to appoint him for a reason.
His words, “His approach has been good. When I see him speak, I really like the way he talks about the club, the team and his ideas,”
“He’s very clear and very honest, and that’s important, because you’re in one of the toughest jobs in the world. You must be very confident and have a strong mentality to be in that position.
“I think you have to trust his project. You made the decision to appoint the guy. I believe they interviewed other managers and decided to go for Arteta – so if you change your mind now just because results haven’t been the best so far this season and he hasn’t had instant success in the league, then you run the risk of being back at square one and having to start all over again.
“I believe Arsenal need to give Arteta time. This is his first full season in charge of the football club.”
“Results haven’t been the best, we know that. But that’s not only because of him. It’s time for the players to stand up.
“Stand up and realise which club they are playing for, who they’re representing. It’s time for them to pull together motivate each other.
“Sometimes it’s not about if you play bad, it’s about what you leave on the field, and the desire you must have. Run for your teammates. Fight for your team.
“It’s that fighting spirit which Arsenal needs now from everybody at the club in order to turn results around.
“I’m not saying there’s no fighting spirit there already, but what they’ve been doing has not been enough in order for them to get results. They need to put more in.”
