Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has been warned that unless the club qualifies for Champions League, he would be sacked.
Arteta is into his third full season in the club and he has so far failed to secure the Champions League qualification that the club craves.
Last season, the Gunners seemed destined to secure fourth spot, only for a late collapse to see them drop out at the expense of bitter rivals Tottenham.
Arteta has since been backed in the transfer window, with Arsenal bringing in Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus this summer, ramping up the pressure for them to perform this campaign.
In an interview with Genting Casino, former Arsenal defender, Williams Gallas has predicted that Arteta’s job will be in jeopardy if Arsenal fail to secure a top-four finish.
“Of course he will be in trouble. Arteta has been asked to make the top four and he didn’t do it last season,” he said.
“If Arsenal don’t play in the Champions League next season, it would cause a lot of drama. They have to have a great season, possibly win the Premier League, but definitely to qualify for the Champions League.
“They have just bought new players, it’s in the hands of Arteta and the players. It will be a big problem for all of them if they don’t do their job to qualify in the Champions League.”
