Arsenal players warn against Arteta as Wenger replacement

Some Arsenal players have told the club not to hire Mikel Arteta as Arsene Wenger's replacement.

The Spaniard, now a member of Pep Guardiola's backroom staff at Manchester City, spent five years with the north London club as a player.

But The Sun claim Arteta wasn't a popular figure amongst the playing group. Many considered him arrogant and egotistical.

The report states that Burnley manager Sean Dyche is highly regarded at the Emirates. However, it is likely the club will choose to recruit a more high-profile manager.

Wenger is under immense pressure after Arsenal lost their fourth consecutive match in a 2-1 defeat to Brighton on Sunday.
