Piers Morgan is outraged by the Arteta contract
Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has spoken out to the club for handing Mikel Arteta a new long-term deal before the end of the season.
The Gunners gaffer, 40, has agreed a contract extension with the Emirates until 2025 as they are close to returning to the Champions League.
Arsenal sit fourth with four games to go after back-to-back victories against Chelsea, Manchester United and West Ham.
The north London team are on pole position to qualify for Europe’s premier competition, with rivals Tottenham two points behind them in fifth place.
And should this weekend’s results go in the right direction, they could be five points clear of Antonio Conte’s men heading into next week’s derby.
But despite Arsenal’s positive form, Morgan has questioned the timing of Arteta’s new deal.
Taking to social media, he tweeted: “WHAT? Maybe wait until he achieves something? Why is he getting this now?”
