Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has backed his former assistant and struggling Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to turn things around at the Emirates.
Arteta while an assistant at City, won two Premier Leagues, an FA Cup and two League Cups before he joined Arsenal in December.
The Gunners are currently struggling in the Premier League sitting 15th on the table just five points above relegation zone after losing 7 games in the first 12 matches.
But Pep Guardiola believes Mikel Arteta is still the right man to change things at Arsenal.
He said: “Arsenal doesn’t have a manager to lead this club in the next years better than him. I don’t have to give my support, because he has it and knows he has has it.
“He is one of the best managers I’ve ever worked with, of course, and seen directly- for his personality, his commitment, his love for his club. Without his love for his club, he still would be here.
“I’m pretty sure he will turn it over and do it like everyone expects. Sometimes when a club comes from not a good period, it needs time. I know in this world, (people think) it doesn’t need time.
“If I was part of the board at Arsenal, I would not have any doubts about his quality and capacity to put Arsenal in the place that Arsenal deserves to be.”
