Under pressure Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta says some of his players at the club have not given their maximum this season.
Arteta’s men are set to end the season without a major trophy and facing the possibility of missing out on Europe for the first time in 25 years and the coach has suggested that a few of his players did not give their all for the club.
Ahead of Wednesday’s game against London rivals Chelsea, Arteta was asked if he thought his players had given their maximum this season and he said a “majority of them” had but certain players had not.
When pressed on how he could change that, the Spaniard told reporters: “Finding a different way to do it, challenging them again, putting somebody next to them to try to push them again.”
The Spaniard has for the first time hinted that several first team players are unable to “evolve” from a certain level, with the Gunners set for the worst Premier League finish in 25 years.
“Some of them can get to a certain level and you cannot push them any further,” he added. “You want to evolve them but it’s not possible,” he concluded.
