‘WHAT? Maybe wait until he achieves something? Why is he getting this now?’: Piers Morgan leads Arsenal fans’ moans about Mikel Arteta’s contract extension – but supporters are left divided as others celebrate ‘best news of the month’

Piers Morgan has slammed Arsenal’s decision to extend manager Mikel Arteta’s contract, questioning why the club did so before their former player ‘achieves something’.

News of Arteta’s three-year extension has divided the Gunners fanbase, with some like Morgan against the decision while others called it the ‘best news of the month’.

Arsenal are currently fourth in the Premier League, meaning they would qualify for a spot at Europe’s elite table for the first time in six years, and the ambitious Arteta has vowed to take them to the ‘next level’.

However, Morgan echoed the thoughts of many Arsenal fans by being flabbergasted at why Arteta was rewarded with a new contract before actually securing a Champions League spot.   

The Gunners face Leeds on Sunday and then travel to bitter rivals Tottenham on Thursday in what could be a season-defining north London derby.

Spurs are currently one place and two points behind Arsenal in the Premier League table – though they play Liverpool on Saturday – and the result of next week’s derby could determine who takes the final Champions League place.

‘WHAT? Maybe wait until he achieves something? Why is he getting this now?’ Morgan tweeted on Friday morning, and several other fans chimed in with similar sentiments. 

One fan said the announcement was ‘ill-timed’ and that Arsenal should have waited until the end of the season, while another lambasted the decision as ‘showing no progress’. 

However, several other Arsenal fans welcomed the news of Arteta’s new contract, with one going as far as to call it the ‘best news of the month’.

‘This brings a smile to my face,’ wrote one Twitter user, while another urged fellow Gunners supporters to ‘trust the process’ of the Arsenal hierarchy.
