Mikel Arteta called Arsenal’s performance against Newcastle ‘f***ing embarrassing’ and ‘unacceptable’ in a clip from All or Nothing: Arsenal.
The Gunners manager’s obscene, sweary rant after a 2-0 loss against the Magpies, that effectively cost them Champions League football, was aired in Amazon’s documentary.
All or Nothing’s final two episodes of the eight-part series are released for streaming online on Tuesday.
And the final episode reveals Arteta’s furious dressing-down of his players in an X-rated tirade after a Ben White own goal and Bruno Guimaraes strike in the penultimate game of the season proved fatal to their European hopes.
Mikel Arteta’s X-rated rant at his Arsenal players has been revealed in All or Nothing: Arsenal
The last two – of eight – episodes in the series will be available to stream from Tuesday evening
He said: ‘It doesn’t matter what I say, it doesn’t matter what you say, now it’s too late. They were 10,000 times better than us today.
‘In everything, with earning the right to play, we didn’t win a f***ing duel, we didn’t win a second ball, we were horrible with the f***ing ball.
‘With the organisation, we have nothing, guys. No-thing. So now, shut your mouth and eat it. We could have conceded eight goals. If you see their chances (now), you will cry.
‘You will cry the way we have competed. It’s not that we competed (badly), we didn’t compete at all in the game. It’s f***ing embarrassing to come here and work the way we have done it. Embarrassing, guys.
‘What happened today is f***ing unacceptable. And if you accept something like this, you live in a different world, guys. A different world.’
After sitting down and taking 15 seconds to compose himself, Arteta continued on his furious speech.
Newcastle easily beat Arsenal 2-0 at St James’ Park in the penultimate game of the season
The north London side could and should have lost by more goals as they were blown away
He added: ‘Don’t worry, I will face the people (media). Today it is hard to defend you, guys, hard. I will take all the s*** again, no worries. But we prepare to start tomorrow to start training, to be there, because we have our fans there.
‘You never know what happens in football. They (Tottenham) might lose at Norwich. You don’t know,’ before storming out.
Tottenham went on to beat the relegated Canaries 5-0 on the final day, and although Arsenal thrashed Everton 5-1, it proved too little, too late.
The Gunners took a Europa League spot after finishing two points behind Antonio Conte’s Tottenham, who had beaten them 3-0 earlier in May.
Shouting at players after a poor performance is generally associated with more ‘old school’ managers.
But Arteta – often described as ‘modern’ and ‘forward thinking’ – was not afraid to deliver some unequivocal home truths.
The loss ultimately cost the Gunners Champions League football at the expense of Tottenham
And a furious Arteta (pictured) then unloaded on his players with a sweary, obscene diatribe
Previous episodes showed the Spaniard blasting his players after a 1-0 FA Cup defeat against then-Championship side Nottingham Forest.
He bellowed: ‘I accept losing, I accept losing, but I don’t accept these f*****g standards. I don’t accept them. It is nowhere near. NOWHERE NEAR.
‘Attitude is not enough. Courage is not enough. To run is not enough. You have to have much more than that and it is nowhere near. You agree with me, guys? Yeah? Then between you, f*****g do it!
‘Demand [it of] yourself. That is what I am telling you [in] f*****g training, because I see it in training that it does not matter to give the ball away. It’s OK… I go for the next ball…
‘No! Because in the game, it’s gone. When I lose, I am upset. When I lose the small-sided games [in training] I’m upset. Because that is the f*****g standards. You come here and you know you f*****g lose.
Arteta then picked up the laundry basket and let it fall to the ground, before turning on his heel to leave. ‘It’s f*****g s**t, I’m telling you. S**t!’
