Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has backed Mikel Arteta to succeed at the Emirates.
There had been speculations that Arteta will be the next manager of the Gunners after the club sacked Unai Emery some weeks ago.
Wenger who was replaced by Emery after 22 years in charge of the club believes that the former captain of the club has the ability to succeed at the Emirates.
Wenger while speaking with Sky Sports said, “I am an Arsenal supporter. And at the moment, I support the manager in charge and the manager in charge is Ljungberg. When Arteta will be in charge, I will support Arteta.”
“He [Arteta] is intelligent, he has passion, he has the knowledge, but Ljungberg [does] as well.”
“I believe that Arteta has certainly a great future, he has certainly learned a lot in his first position as an assistant coach and after that as well, he will have to deal with the fact that he has no experience at that level and he will have to get surrounded well.”
