Piers Morgan urges Cristiano Ronaldo to join Arsenal as he criticizes Mikel Arteta

Following a defeat, Arsenal’s perceived lack of firepower was once again in the spotlight. Striker Gabriel Jesus missed three chances and delivered an erratic display, while Kai Havertz was also wasteful in front of goal as the hosts dominated the first half to no avail. This leaves Manchester City as the new leaders, two points clear of Arsenal and Liverpool. TV presenter Morgan expressed his outspoken views on social media after the match, emphasizing Arsenal’s lack of a proper striker and criticizing Arteta’s decision not to prioritize a top striker.

When followers tried to goad Morgan by asking if he would again be calling his friend Ronaldo, Morgan reiterated his previously held view that the Portuguese icon would excel in an Arsenal shirt. Despite being 39, Ronaldo has scored a remarkable 56 goals in 62 games for Al-Nassr since his move to the Saudi Pro League in January 2023, leading the top-flight scoring charts this season. Morgan also criticized a clip of a frustrated Ten Hag storming out of his post-match press conference, questioning whether the manager is still ‘sleeping well’ about the way he drove Cristiano Ronaldo out of the club. Ronaldo had scored 18 Premier League goals in his first season back at Old Trafford in 2021/22, finishing as the club’s top scorer before the arrival of the Dutch manager led to a fallout.
