What Pep Guardiola said about Mikel Arteta


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta might be far below his boss at his former club Man City but he has been highly regarded and hailed despite falling by 1-0 in Saturday’s game.

The Spanish boss returned to his former club on Saturday but as an opponent and suffered a 1-0 defeat, no thanks to Raheem Sterling’s first-half goal.

Man City boss Pep Guardiola hints that he will not be deceived by the result of the game as he hailed Mikel Arteta as a great coach who has everything to become a contender.

He did not hide his words by stating that Mikel Arteta has all it takes to win the Premier League for Arsenal as that has to been experienced for a long time at the club.

Mikel Arteta was an assistant to the former Barcelona manager and they both enjoyed the working relationship with a lot of results to boast of before accepting to pick up the job at the North London outfit.

The Spanish boss has been hailed for giving the North London outfit a better shape and helping them to be a better contender than they have been for the last few years.

There was a need for such a manager after Arsene Wenger left with Unai Emery’s leg failing to fit in the shoes.
