Following his North London derby loss, Arteta accused match officials of ‘destroying a beautiful game’ as Arsenal’s Rob Holding was sent off in the 33rd minute.
Not shying away from the fact that he’s a good coach but Conte says all he has heard from Arteta is complaints.
“Arteta is a really good coach, he can become an important coach in the future. But in six months I have listened to him complain a lot.
“He’s just started in his job, and I have listened to him complain a lot. I think he has to be focused more on his team, and not complaining. I think he has to be calmer, and try to continue to work because he is very good. But a coach complaining a lot is not good.”
Asked about his reaction to Conte’s criticism on Sky Sports, Arteta refused to comment on it as he says, they’re focused on the next game.
“I’m fully focused on Newcastle”
Asked if that humiliating 3-0 loss was one of the lowest moments of his managerial career, Arteta said: “Thursday was another one and losing a derby is always painful.
