Arteta’s Toure offer
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta would like Yaya Toure to join the club as a coach.
And the Arsenal manager has told Toure to call him should he want to pick up any further experience with the Gunners.
It comes after Arteta offered ex-Gunners midfielder Jack Wilshere the chance to train with the club and coach the under-17’s team back in October.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has to take some of the responsibility for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s troubles in front of goal this season.
The Gunners have struggled to consistently find the back of the net this season, with Aubameyang missing a number of good opportunities in recent weeks.
When Arteta arrived at the club two years ago, the Gabon international was scoring goals for fun but the numbers show just how his performances have declined under Arteta’s leadership.
Arsenal legend’s tragic news
Gunners legend Ian Wright had to leave ITV’s live FA Cup coverage midway through a match on Sunday after receiving some tragic news.
Wright had been providing punditry for the Rochdale and Plymouth Argyle encounter when he was sadly informed of a family bereavement.
Presenter Mark Pougatch broke the news at half-time when he said: “Ian, I’m afraid is not [with us at half-time]. A family bereavement, so he has gone to where he is most needed – with his family.”
The Arsenal legend has since been flooded with messages of support on social media following the tragic news.
