Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has revealed the extent of Arsene Wenger’s anger after Liverpool put five goals past the Gunners on Saturday, Sky Sports has reported.
Arteta added he had never seen Wenger so angry in his time playing under the long-serving Frenchman after Liverpool were out of sight by half-time. Arteta scored a consolation penalty in the second-half.
“We know we need to improve and face those games in a different manner because after 19 minutes we were 4-0 down and it was like a car crash,” Arteta said.
“The manager was really upset at half-time. That’s normal because it wasn’t good enough for this football club. It was the angriest I have seen him.”
Arteta moved to the Emirates Stadium from Everton in 2011, becoming the club’s vice-captain under Thomas Vermaelen. He has made more than 100 appearances for Arsenal, scoring 14 goals, having spent six-and-a-half years at Goodison Park.
The defeat to Liverpool leaves Arsenal second, behind Chelsea by a point, and above Manchester City by the same margin.
