Arteta applauds spirited exchange between Zinchenko and White

Posted : 31 January 2024

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta expressed his approval of the heated exchange between teammates Oleksandr Zinchenko and Ben White following the Gunners' 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest. The altercation occurred at the end of the match when Arsenal narrowly avoided conceding a two-goal lead.


Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka had given Arsenal a second-half lead, but Taiwo Awoniyi's late strike for Forest intensified the closing moments. Arteta welcomed the players demanding more from each other, indicating a desire for improvement and resolution within the team.


Arteta revealed that Gabriel Jesus played despite suffering a kick that resulted in fluid on his knee. Despite concerns about his fitness, Jesus insisted on contributing to the team's success. 


Arteta praised Jesus's mentality, emphasizing the player's determination to help the team win. The manager expressed satisfaction with Jesus's performance and positive attitude, suggesting that the player's commitment played a crucial role in Arsenal's victory.


When questioned about the possibility of Jesus being doubtful for the upcoming match against Liverpool, Arteta admitted uncertainty about the player's status. Jesus had sustained a significant impact in the previous game, leading to a reaction in his knee, the same knee that underwent surgery before.


 However, Arteta acknowledged Jesus's positivity, good feeling, and sharpness in training, indicating that the player's mindset and performance were impressive.
