After his comments went viral, Arsenal supporters responded via Twitter, with some even calling on Arteta to sell him.
“One of the best decisions Arteta has made, and I hope to sell the player as quickly as possible,” one wrote.
Another posted: “Maybe if he shuts his mouth and focuses more on his football then he’ll get his chance. At this rate he is pushing to be sold.”
One wrote: “He could force a move away from Arsenal if he continues playing well, but if he wants a future at Arsenal he needs to told what he should and shouldn’t say when he’s being interviewed.”
