Speculations about Mikel Arteta’s future at Arsenal are very unjust, Hector Bellerin has said.
Bellerin recently revealed that the underperforming players are the ones to blame for the club’s poor form.
According to him, players must be willing to take responsibility for the current situation because Arteta has done his best with coaching the team to win all games.
He added that Arteta should be praised for winning 2 trophies immediately he joined the club.
His words, “So unjust. So unjust. As I say, we have to, as players, take responsibility for this because I think we all know that Mikel and his coaching team give us all the tools that we need to win all the games.
“When you lose a game it’s always very easy to blame the coach, but also when the coach gives us the tools we have to be the ones to step up.
“The way that Mikel plans these games, all the knowledge that they give us before we step on to the pitch is second to none.
“Sometimes it’s not that easy, depending on the opponent, but that’s why football is beautiful. If you play the games on the [tactics] board, then it will be a completely different game.”
“I think how he [Arteta] changed the dynamic of the team and the club straight away – he was amazing to get two trophies straight away.
“There are obviously questions, and we’re not on the best run. I have to say that when you are planning on doing something big – and that’s what he’s doing, changing the identity of the team, of the club, change the behaviours – he’s not trying to make changes just on the pitch but outside of it, this isn’t something you can do overnight.
“I feel the team has improved massively in so many areas of the game that needed improvement. Even though we’re not doing so great in others, it’s all part of the process.
“When you’re trying to implement such a big idea it does take time for everyone to get used to it and it takes time to get results but one thing that I feel is that since he came he has instilled a confidence in this team, a hunger. For us that’s so important. I always say I’m certain that things are going to get so much better.”
