Former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta was in the running for Arsenal managerial post in May as he competes with Unai Emery, Maurizio Sarri, Luis Enrique and David Wagner for the job.

Despite numerous reports suggesting the Spaniard was leading the race for the job, former PSG and Sevilla manager Unai Emery surprisingly beat him to the coaching job due to his inexperience.

Having failed to get the Gunners job, Arteta continues working under Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola as City’s assistant manager.

The Spaniard was in charge of the Citizens in today’s encounter as Guardiola is served a one-match ban he received during their second leg defeat to Liverpool in the quarter-final stage of the competition last season.

While speaking before City’s clash with Lyon later tonight which ended 2-1, Arteta confess he had no hard feelings about losing out on Arsenal’s job as he believes he still needs to learn more from Guardiola.

About tonight’s game, he said the players are hungry for more success and they want to build on the success they achieved last season.

He charged his ‘young’ team to ensure they defeat their Ligue 1 opponents so as to stand in a better position in the group after the first round of matches, but they failed to win.

Arteta was without Benjamin Mendy for the game.
