Manchester City ace gives honest assessment of Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta

The German international worked with the Spanish boss during his time on Pep Guardiola’s coaching staff.

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has heaped praise on Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, saying he enjoyed a great working relationship with the Spaniard.

Arteta left at the back end of last season to take on his first job in management and he’s revived the fortunes of the Gunners.

With most footballers in self-isolation after the global health pandemic, Gundogan decided to do a Q&A on Twitter.

One Arsenal supporter asked him about his relationship with Arteta and the German responded in an honest fashion.

Arteta spent three years under Guardiola at City winning several trophies alongside one of the best managers in the world.


That experience has clearly put him in good shape at Arsenal, with the Gunners vastly improved under his management.

Gundogan, 29, has played 154 times for the Citizens and is enjoying a good run in the team this season.

The break won’t have come at a good time of the man with 37 caps for his country with his form pretty good at the moment.

Gundogan only cost Manchester City £20 million and he has proved a real steal for the club.

Arteta would dearly love to add a player boasting similar determination and ball-playing qualities during the summer.

His first season is all about steadying the ship and next season he will be hoping to kick on even further.

Hardworking is perhaps the best quality that Gundogan has linked to Arteta.

The Arsenal job isn’t an easy one and supporters will hope his key attribute will rub onto his team in the future.
