Transfer: Why Mikel Arteta will end up a better manager than his boss


A lot of accolades have been directed towards Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta since he took over as Arsenal boss as a result of the transformation in the team.

Mikel Arteta took over from Unai Emery to deliver better performance but more to that is the fact that he has been a good manager in terms of the recruitment of players. The kind of players and the pattern of negotiations have been hailed.

Where then did the Spanish boss learn the trade?

Mikel Arteta has had the opportunity of learning under former manager Arsene Wenger but more to that, he has worked as a coach under manager Pep Guardiola at Man City and it is expected that a lot had been learnt.

Howbeit, Mikel Arteta could now be better than his boss and could deliver a better performance in the coming years.

This is because of the insinuations that he is more open minded than his former boss at Man City.

Pep Guardiola’s controversy with Ivory Coast star, Yaya Toure has given the narrative that he is not opened to all players which of course leaves him limited.

That is, of course, an advantage to Mikel Arteta as his only condition for a player is his ability without any personal bias that Pep Guardiola had been accused of.
