Arsenal club shop sell out of bizarre £25 T-shirts based on Mikel Arteta’s All Or Nothing speech – with fans divided | The Sun

ARSENAL have sold out of bizarre shirts that were inspired by Mikel Arteta's confusing speech from the club's All of Nothing documentary.

Arteta left his players baffled before last season's North London derby at the Emirates as he took to the whiteboard and drew a cartoon heart and brain.

The Spanish tactician used that analogy to teach his players how to work together on the pitch.

Arteta was filmed saying: "Guys, we have to play with our big hearts. At the same time, we have to play with a big brain. And these have to work together.

"This is your passion, how your manager wants you to put into the game. How much you want to commit yourself in the game."

Cameras caught the likes of Bukayo Saka, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Albert Sambi Lokonga looking confused.

But it seems like they may have actually understood Arteta's weird speech as they ultimately beat rivals Tottenham 3-1.

That is why the club decided to commemorate this speech with a funny shirt that shows Arteta's cartoons.

The T-shirt, which cost £35, is now sold out with even Arsenal technical director Edu buying one – a development that left the fans divided.

Many fans were left baffled as they were not impressed by the design and took to Twitter to criticise those who spent their hard-earned cash on it.

One fan tweeted: "Surely nobody over the age of 5 wears that?"

Another posted: "Grown man wearing this would need a slap."

A third wrote: "Embarrassing."

But there were also those who liked the shirt and praised Arsenal for their latest initiative.


Some even believe Arteta should pose with one of them next time he faces the press.

One fan posted: "I need this ASAP."

Another tweeted: "Went to get it for my son, but sadly they were all sold out!!"

And third stated: "In fairness fair play. Would love to see Mikel rocking one of these in the post-match interview."
