Mikel Arteta is Arsenal’s new Coach – Arsenal has made a spectacular move by appointing their former Spanish Midfielder Mikel Arteta to be the man to take over from Arsene Wenger.
After numerous rumours about who is to take over the reigns at the gunners, the Spaniard was the chosen one. The Arsenal job has been linked to numerous experienced top coaches across Europe but the club made the choice to go for the more inexperienced Spaniard.
Arteta’s return to the emirate club as the new manager is set to be announced in the coming days as he prepares to replace Arsene Wenger. According to reports, Mikel Arteta has agreed in principle to take over from Arsene Wenger and become the new manager at Arsenal FC.
The former Everton Midfielder who had a stint at the gunners before his retirement is currently one of the assistant coaches to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and played a huge part in guiding them to their record-shattering Premier League title success this season.
It will be recalled that the likes of former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique, current Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri and former Chelsea, PSG, AC Milan, Bayern Munich and Real Madrich coach, Carlo Ancelotti was strongly being linked to the Arsenal job.
Allegri who was the favourite recently ruled himself out of the gunners job and prefers to remain at Juventus. Another strong name on the list was Enrique but some of the members of the Arsenal board who have worked with the Spaniard at Barca had maintained that it was difficult to work with him.
The new Arsenal coach is expected to bring his own backroom staff on board when he fully takes over as. Some reports are already linking Santi Cazorla as a potential addition, while the futures of Steve Bould and Jens Lehmann are yet to be sorted out.
Goodluck to him and the gunners. It is a new era at Arsenal and we wish them the very best.
