Former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has received a strong backing to succeed Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola whenever he leaves the club.
Mikel Arteta is the assistant manager to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and former club skipper Vincent Kompany believes that the Spaniard has the right qualities needed for the job once his compatriot leaves the Citizens.
Kompany talked about Mikel Arteta during his unveiling earlier this week when he was asked about the possibility of him becoming a Manchester City in the future.
The Belgian international star was recently unveiled as the player/manager at boyhood club Anderlecht.

Vincent Kompany left Manchester City this summer after his contract at Manchester City came to an end shortly after leading the Citizens to an unprecedented domestic treble.
Kompany and Manchester City won the Premier League title and the Carabao Cup title again before adding the FA Cup title to make it a treble-winning season.
Mikel Arteta played his part in the successes recorded by Manchester City as the assistant to club manager Pep Guardiola.
The former Arsenal player has been linked with several managerial jobs in the past and his name has been thrown into the hat for the vacant Newcastle United job as part of a three-man list of managers alongside Rangers boss Steven Gerrard and Patrick Vieira.
