Arteta Fires Back at “Disrespectful” Question Ahead of Arsenal’s Showdown with Manchester City

Arsenal Manager’s Response Highlights Tension Ahead of Crucial Premier League Clash

As Arsenal braces for a high-stakes encounter against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium this Sunday, manager Mikel Arteta found himself embroiled in a heated exchange during a pre-match press conference, with a particular question drawing ire from the Spaniard.

With just one point separating Arsenal from the reigning Premier League champions after 28 games, the looming fixture holds immense significance in the title race, reminiscent of last season’s decisive clash where City secured a resounding 4-1 victory.

Arteta, addressing the media ahead of the pivotal showdown, faced a question that evidently struck a nerve. A journalist referenced Arteta’s past tactic of playing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ during training sessions before facing Liverpool, as depicted in the Amazon Prime documentary ‘All or Nothing.’ The reporter insinuated whether such measures were now deemed unnecessary due to a perceived change in mindset within the Arsenal squad.

Arteta’s response was swift and pointed, signaling his displeasure with the line of questioning: “And if I tell you that I did something when we beat Man City at home? I might have done it! And maybe it was needed because we won! It doesn’t work like that. We have to do what we feel and what the team needs and try to shape that up so they are in the best possible mindset.”

The exchange didn’t go unnoticed by Arsenal supporters, who rallied behind their manager, lambasting the perceived disrespect in the line of questioning. Criticism was directed towards the journalist, with one fan labeling the questions as “stupid” and another praising Arteta’s adept response.
