Arsenal’s Nuno Tavares throws paddy as Mikel Arteta subs star after 33-minute shocker

Arsenal full-back Nuno Tavares was left furious, throwing his gloves anger after he was subbed off by Mikel Arteta just 33 minutes into the Gunners’ FA Cup third-round tie at Nottingham Forest. The £8million summer arrival from Benfica has largely impressed this season – even keeping Kieran Tierney out of the side before the Scotland international recently regained his spot.

But as Arteta shuffled his pack and recalled Tavares to the starting XI, this was far from his finest outing in an Arsenal shirt as he struggled to settle into the fast-paced cup clash.

Forest were having plenty of joy down Tavares’ flank before the defender overhit a lofty back-pass that caused goalkeeper Bernd Leno a scare.

The youngster also struggled to take on board a number of instructions from animated boss Arteta on the near side.

After 30 minutes, the cut-throat Spaniard was not prepared to wait around, asking Tierney to warm up.

A member of Arsenal’s coaching staff then consoled him in a bid to explain the early change.

At half-time, ITV pundit and Gunners legend Ian Wright admitted he now fears for Tavares’ future given Arteta’s recent disciplinary record with former captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

“I think this is the wrong manager to do that with,” Wright said.

“Showing that kind of attitude, he doesn’t want to be touched, I think the disrespect he’s showing is something Arteta won’t like.


“Acting like that after the performance he’s put in.”

Roy Keane was in agreement: “Why is he upset? He’s been sloppy in everything he’s done.

“That is down to his attitude, the way he has started the game.

“You can’t start a game like that, you get dragged off.”
