Three candidates assessed as Arsenal chief Edu told to appoint 'better' boss than Arteta.

Former Premier League striker Darren Bent believes his boyhood club Arsenal needs to name a “better” manager than Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal have endured a tough transitional season and were unable to secure European football for the first time in 25 years.

Arteta has spent 17 months in charge of Arsenal but there is still a lot of tasks to be done to put his mark on the team.

The north Londoners won the FA Cup last season during the Spaniard’s first season, beating Chelsea 2-1 in the final.

However, Bent feels that Arteta has not done plenty to confirm that he is the long-term answer.

The ex-Tottenham forward wants technical director Edu to try and attract former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte – who has lately left Inter Milan after winning the Serie A title.

“Listen, I think we could get better if I’m honest,” Bent said about Arteta on talkSPORT.

“I’m not quite sure about the [Zinedine] Zidane appointment because he fell into a situation with the best players in the world and won three Champions Leagues.

“[Mauricio] Pochettino is never going to go to Arsenal because of his Spurs ties.

“Conte is probably someone where you go, ‘yeah, I wouldn’t mind him’, but I think he’d end up taking a bigger job because he’s a top manager.

“He won the league in England with Chelsea and then went back to Italy to win the league with Inter Milan, what would he come to Arsenal for? What are the benefits?”

Arteta was questioned if he felt under pressure earlier this month and he answered: “I think everybody’s job is always in scrutiny.”

The 39-year-old also called for Edu to back him in the summer transfer window.

He added: ” Let’s see what happens. It’s difficult to predict that one but in general we wouldn’t like to do that [sacrifice players] because we’re only going to be stronger.

“I think is clear that if we want to improve the team we need some resources.”

Arteta is not happy with some of his players as he believes they cannot kick on.

“Some of them can get to a certain level and you cannot push any further,” he explained. “If you want to evolve that, it’s not possible.

“The [level is the] one that we’ve shown because in 38 games it doesn’t lie.”
