Gary Neville reveals major concern over Mikel Arteta and Arsenal's squad

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has uncovered his interests over Arsenal’s crew and ‘inexperienced’ boss Mikel Arteta ahead of the new season.

Neville trusts those at Arsenal ‘get behind’ Arteta this season however concedes he actually feels somewhat wary about the 40-year-old, who took on his first managerial role when he was selected as Unai Emery’s replcaement.

Speaking on The Overlap – in partnership with Sky Bet – Neville said: “I actually hope the fans get behind Mikel Arteta this season, I genuinely do.

“I just worry about the experience in terms of young manager. To be fair, it’s not unfounded, the evidence is there! Last season, Arsenal should have finished in the top four.

“But, in the end the experience of Antonio Conte, the experience of the Tottenham Hotspur players [meant they didn’t].

“In that game, Spurs’ experience on that night it was alarming how naïve Arsenal were and how short they were. My concern is just purely around that.”

Neville believes Arsenal’s squad still lacks leaders and expects the Gunners to miss out on a top-four finish unless both Chelsea and Manchester United ‘blow up’.

The former England defender added: “The experience is still not there either off the pitch or on the pitch. I’ve watched Oleksandr Zinchenko, but he’s not a leader. I love him to bits… but he’s not a leader.

“Is he going to, in the difficult moments of the season, be able to pull it all together? He might do.

“I like the [transfer] window [Arsenal have had], I like everything you’ve done. Arsenal’s players that were there last season will have been burnt a bit by what happened in terms of falling away at the end [from the top four].

“So, have they got enough experience when they hit that same situation again and they’re under pressure with 10 games to go, who is going to get them over the line on the pitch to ensure that they don’t do the same thing again?

“That moment will come because I think they’ll be vying for third or fourth. I just think that’s when Arsenal in the past have just [fallen short].

“I know Chelsea and Manchester United are struggling a bit in terms of where they are and they might both blow up, but I think will both have to happen in order for Arsenal to land in the top four.”

Adrien Rabiot’s move to Man United is at risk, according to several sources.

Fabrizio Romano claims that United still find Rabiot’s salary demands too high, so an agreement on personal terms can’t be reached.

Besides, Rabiot remains unconvinced about Manchester United as his destination this season as they won’t play in the Champions League.
