Mikel Arteta has ‘no chance’ of keeping his Arsenal job after the club’s Europa League exit to Villarreal.
That is the view of Gunners fan John, who watched his side play out a goalless draw as they were unable to overturn a 2-1 first leg deficit in the semi-final tie on Thursday.
Arsenal will play the 2021/22 season without European football for the first time in 25 years unless they bridge a seven-point gap to sixth-placed Tottenham in their final four Premier League games this month.
It is a big ask with the Gunners languishing in ninth place and John insists Arteta must be sacked.
He told the Sports Bar on talkSPORT: “I’ve never, ever been so bored watching a semi-final in my life.
“It was like watching an end-of-season match with nothing riding on it. It was awful. It was so flat. It was ridiculous.
“The team reflects the manager’s personality. He was a dull footballer. Get back to Brick Lane because you aren’t up to being an architect, that’s for sure.
“There is no chance he stays. As bad as he is, behind the scenes is rotten to the core.
“The recruitment over the last few years has been disgraceful. So it’s a rotten club. The owners don’t care.”
John is adamant Arteta has done a worse job than Frank Lampard, who was sacked after an 18-month spell in charge of Chelsea in January.
