Dani Ceballos tips 'genius' Arsenal figure to become 'one of the best in the world'
Dani Ceballos has lavished Mikel Arteta with praise, claiming the manager will become one of the coaches in the world.
Speaking in an interview with El Larguero, the 24-year-old has waxed lyrical about the 38-year-old.
The Spaniard has come to the end of his loan spell in north London and returned to Real Madrid. He proclaimed despite his time with Arsenal, he’d like to return to La Liga.
Ceballos has spent the last two seasons on loan at the Emirates Stadium. His first spell was fairly successful as he helped the Gunners win the FA Cup.
However, his second campaign has proven more stop-start, making a string of errors in the Europa League.
When talking about Arteta and returning to the Spanish top-flight, Ceballos said: “Arteta is a coach who I am sure will be one of the best in the world in the next few years, but I would like to return to the Spanish league.”
TBR View: Arteta has laid down the foundations for success amid Ceballos praise
Amid all the chaos of last season, Arteta quietly laid down the foundations for success.
The defence made a stark improvement from Unai Emery’s tenure. Under the Villarreal manager, Arsenal were conceding 30+ shots against average opposition.
However, under the former Manchester City assistant, the Gunners conceded the third-least goals last season.
Meanwhile, a couple of young stars have made their way into the first-team picture.
Whether by luck or good management, Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe are two of the first names on the team sheet.
The England international won the club’s player of the season award, a sign of his impact under Arteta.
His style of play has been on display for the majority of his tenure in north London. The performances in the FA Cup back in 2020 showed off some of the most entertaining football played by the Gunners in recent time.
The opening goal against Manchester City saw the side play through Pep Guardiola’s side from their own box up to the final third.
Arteta’s reign may not have taken off just yet, but, there are signs he’s laying down solid foundations. A few transfer windows could help aid Arteta in becoming ‘one of the best in the world’ amid praise from Ceballos.
