Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has reacted to the protests taking place outside the Emirates Stadium this evening. The Gunners lock horns with Everton in their Premier League clash. But they go into that game with plenty going on in the background.
In the week, Arsenal tried to join the European Super League.
They proudly boasted about being one of the new competition’s founding members, posting official statements to all their social media channels as well as their official website.
However, while Arsenal were in one minute, they were out the next.
Fans made their voices heard, with the Gunners then withdrawing from the competition following a big backlash.
Supporters have today been protesting outside the Emirates Stadium over the way the Kroenke’s, father Stan and son Josh, run the club.
And Arteta has now reacted to the scenes outside the Emirates, refusing to criticise while acknowledging it ‘doesn’t help.’

“We hear them,” he said.
“We know what they think, but our responsibility, our role, our commitment is to be on that pitch, trying to play the best possible way to win the match. That’s it.
“Obviously it doesn’t help when you have your own fans trying to stand out on a match day and saying loud and clear they’re not happy with something.
“But our job, again, is to win the football match and when that happens, everything is better.
“That’s our best way to contribute in a positive way.”
