Gary Neville claims that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has “no faith” in £34m summer signing Fabio Vieira after he failed to come on from the bench in a draw with Newcastle on the night. Tuesday.
For most of the game, Arsenal struggled to break through the Newcastle defense but their efforts were unsuccessful, much to Arteta’s disappointment. But Vieira still failed to come on as a substitute for the second straight game, his Gift Day match against West Ham lasting less than five minutes.
Neville commented: “Arteta, he looks at £34m worth of Vieira on the bench and doesn’t put him on the pitch, because he doesn’t believe he can improve the situation. Fabio Vieira costs £34 million. Mikel clearly thinks he’s going to weaken the team by bringing him on.”
This draw makes Arsenal unable to increase the gap with Man City.
