Arsenal loanee Tavares "annoying" Marseille coaches having previously irritated Arteta

Arsenal loanee Tavares "annoying" Marseille coaches having previously irritated Arteta

An Arsenal loanee is causing problems.

An Arsenal stars loan spell is set to end badly after he annoyed coaches at Marseille, according to reports.

The Gunners currently sit top of the Premier League table and made the decision to loan Portuguese full-back Nuno Taveras to the French side last summer.

Despite initially impressing, manager Mikel Arteta deemed him surplus to requirements and the coaching staff at Marseille seem to think the same.

In his first few months at the club he produced some exceptional performances, but his form has dipped and he's started to annoy boss Igor Tudor.

According to French outlet Foot-Sur7 (via The Boot Room), Taveras' attitude has annoyed leaders at Marseille and they don't want to make his loan move permanent at the end of the season.

He will return to North London and a decision on his future will be made in the summer.

He annoyed Arteta too

It's not the first time that reports have emerged of Tavares irritating his coaching staff.

A report back in February claimed that Arsenal boss Arteta would often be annoyed with his behaviour and it was the reason the club agreed to loan him to Marseille.

L'Equipe also claimed that he 'seemed lost on the pitch' when coming up against stars like Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi.

He's even lashed out on the pitch before and was sent off in a game against Montpellier in the final minutes despite his side leading 2-0.

Given his problems have seemed to follow him to France so it would be a surprise if Arteta keeps him in his squad for next season.

However, he's given second chances to players in the past and given the Gunners only bought Tavares last summer they might be reluctant to sell him straight away.
