Angry Arsenal fans stopped Mikel Arteta from leaving the Emirates Stadium in his car on Sunday following their 2-0 loss to Chelsea.
Ugly footage, shared online, captured a group of frustrated supporters surrounding the manager’s vehicle and shouting at him to leave the club after the Gunners registered their second loss of the 2021-2022 campaign.
The fans were heard asking the under-fire boss to ‘leave’ Arsenal after their worst start to a season in their 118-year history.
Arsenal suffered another Premier League defeat on Sunday after goals from Romelu Lukaku and Reece James saw the visitors walk away with three points.
The result also marked Arsenal’s second loss of the campaign, after a disappointing performance against Brentford the week before saw them lose 2-0.
Therefore, Arteta’s side have failed to pick up any points or score any goals in their opening two games – making it their worst start to a season in 118 years.
Fans have made their stance on the situation clear, having booed their own players off the pitch at both the half-time and full-time whistle across the two weekends.
They have also approached the manager directly to discuss the situation and ask him to ‘do yourself a favour’ by resigning.
Following Arsenal’s home game against Chelsea, Arteta was harassed by a group of fans who swarmed his car outside the stadium.
The fans prevented the manager from leaving the club as they stood around his car and asked if he thought Arsenal’s performance was ‘good enough’.
The group of men were also heard saying: “Arteta, do yourself a favour and leave the club” before security guards escorted them away from the vehicle.
