Keown: Arteta has put job in jeopardy

Arsenal hero Martin Keown feels manager Mikel Arteta has put his job in jeopardy after handing David Luiz a new deal.

Although many supporters are still confident that Arteta is the right man to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the table, Keown is now worried.

“What I’m concerned about now is the stock of the manager,” he told talkSPORT.

“I think there’s enough favour there for Arteta as a young manager to maybe get away with this one.

“Nonetheless, I think he should be making the right decisions for the football club and I don’t believe David Luiz is the right man to be in that dressing room.

“Frank Lampard took a different view when he took over at Chelsea; he wanted David Luiz out of his dressing room, for whatever reason, whether that was performance or character, I’m not sure, but he made that clear decision.”
