These are the best Mikel Arteta jokes after the Arsenal captain was heavily criticised for his performance in the Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund.


Outclassed by the Germans, a night to forget for The Gunners was perhaps epitomised by the former Everton midfielder’s contribution that included a higher foul count (4) than tackles won (1).

Supporters and rival fans took to Twitter to vent their incredulity and frustration with the 32-year-old.

Also, why does no one have a beard? If Arteta is going to play like a bum he may as well look like one.

When I die, I want Mikel Arteta to bury me so he can let me down one last time.

If you had a gun with one bullet in would you shoot Arteta or Flamini?
