Arteta Reacts To Rwanda President Kagame’s Arsenal Criticism

Arteta Reacts To Rwanda President Kagame’s Arsenal Criticism 

Mikel Arteta responded to Rwanda president Paul Kagame’s criticism of Arsenal following their shock defeat to newly promoted Brentford last weekend.

The Gunners suffered a nightmare Premier League opener as they lost 2-0 to Brentford.

Rwanda are one of Arsenal’s sponsors with the ‘Visit Rwanda’ logo printed on the sleeve of their shirt.

Following the defeat, Kagame wrote on Twitter: “What?? It’s football, it’s a loss of Arsenal at/to Brentford. Brentford deserved to win and they did.

“The game itself aside Arsenal and the fans don’t deserve to kind of get used to this….NO!!! I say this as one of the big fans of Arsenal. The change has taken too long to come!

“It’s been a struggle of about decade(s) -ups & downs – more downs until this point. Can’t we have a plan that really works?? One part to look at is how we deal in the market- players we buy to execute the plan. The touch & go mentality does not bring change.

“We just must NOT excuse or Accept mediocrity. A team has to be built with purpose to win, win, win. So that when we lose….it was not to be expected! I am sure we all know on whose shoulders the heaviest burden rests.

“I hope they know too or even accept it!!!”

And Arteta has since responded to the remarks and reckons they were very “disrespectful.”

He said: “I’m talking about the lack of clarity in the messages and using moments to try to come and using some very disrespectful ways to describe certain things. That’s what I’m saying. Nothing new.

“It’s not about pointing, it’s about expressing the feelings that are so obvious in moments like this.”

Arteta and his players will hope to bounce back from the shock defeat to Brentford when they host Chelsea on Sunday.

  • Arteta or whatever you are called, His Excellency President Paul Kagame has hit the nail on the head, You are underperforming and you know that. I hope you will still at your job by mid-season.

  • Arteta keep your mouth shut.

  • Arteta is in him comfort zone hence he can still talk….If he was Chelsea coach he would have been jobless by now.

  • Arsenal is fast becoming a relegation team. Arteta is a substandard coach so he doesn’t understand the looming disaster.

    What do you expect from a ass kisser. They will always find a way to cover up there garbage

  • Arteta and Edu are losers.Instead of moving one step forward and signing Bisssouma who we badly need they took us two steps backward and extended Xhakas contract who we don’t need.

  • Arteta is a total disaster, period!

  • Ahg, We don’t need people like Arteta at Arsenal. He’s useless to say the least… All he does is just crap talks and turns up awful on matchday. He thinks we like that? Nonsense

    So, no problem in Rwanda again? Problem has finished in Rwanda?
    If yes, a big congrats to them!
    Next question – Is this the best way to use left over funds? Money that is badly needed in Rwanda is being used to sponsor an English club?
    There are no local projects or infrastructure development the money could have gone towards? There is nothing left to be done to improve the daily lives of Rwandans, abi?
    A country with an estimated GDP per capita of a little over $800 has excess money to pour into funding a foreign football club’s operations? A country where almost 90% of the population scrapes by on $2 per day?
    The English will kuku take the money. Wetin concern them?
    An African country deems it ok to “generously donate” from their meager, insufficient funds to the English economy, and their president has so much time on his hands to start a twitter tug-of-war with the Arsenal gaffer.
    Interesting, to say the least!
