Arsenal's Mikel Arteta Introduces Wheel Of Fortune For Players Breaking Rules

Arsenal's Mikel Arteta Introduces Wheel Of Fortune For Players Breaking Rules

By Mike Parrott

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has implemented a new system for when players break minor infractions within the club. A new 'Wheel of Fortune' will be used when a player is late to training for example.

Arteta has only been at Arsenal since December 2019, but has been trying to radically change the system and culture inside the Premier League club.

The system has changed massively from Unai Emery's rigid plan into a more fluid system for the attackers, relying on possession and high-pressing, akin to that of his old mentor, Pep Guardiola.

However, he's also trying to make his players accountable by creating a 'Wheel of Fortune' for breaking minor infractions within the club.

David Ornstein from The Athletic said:

"Although Arteta demands utter professionalism from those under his charge, he is not without a sense of humour. In recent months, the club's code of conduct has seen a playful new addition the Spaniard brought with him from City: The Wheel of Fortune."

"If a player commits a minor indiscretion, such as being late for a team meeting, they must spin the wheel. On the wheel are a series of forfeits, ranging from a modest fine to cleaning the dressing room, or even having to polish the captain's car. There is one option on the wheel - the one every player hopes for - that permits a "lucky escape". It's just one of a series of changes Arteta has made that have lifted the mood at London Colney."

This should come to great relief to Arsenal fans after Arteta's predecessor, Emery, was supposedly sacked due to him losing the dressing room, never being able to fully control or engage with the Arsenal players.
