Arteta needs more time and Aubameyang needs more support, says Silva

Former Arsenal player has backed Mikel Arteta. Gilberto Silva says that Arteta's approach is right.

Arsenal

fans are experiencing their worst start to the season since the last four decades. They are currently sitting in the 14th position with 5 points gap with the fourth place. Arteta’s side is unable to create goalscoring chances but is better at defending.

They have lost 5 Premier League matches already this season with taking only 1 point from the last 3 games. Aubameyang also has not scored from an open game since the first game of the season against Fulham. Gilberto Silva however believes that

needs more time and

needs more support from his teammates.

"His approach has been good. When I see him speak, I really like the way he talks about the club, the team and his ideas,"

the former Arsenal midfielder told Ladbrokes.

“He's very clear and very honest, and that's important, because you're in one of the toughest jobs in the world. You must be very confident and have a strong mentality to be in that position.

“I think you have to trust his project. You made the decision to appoint the guy. I believe they interviewed other managers and decided to go for Arteta - so if you change your mind now just because results haven't been the best so far this season and he hasn't had instant success in the league, then you run the risk of being back at square one and having to start all over again.

“I believe Arsenal need to give Arteta time. This is his first full season in charge of the football club."
