Klopp and Ten Hag are also raving about Arteta’s Arsenal

Mikel Arteta has won our hearts; it seems like a lifetime ago that Gooners chanted “Arteta must go,” and the Spaniard begged them to trust the process.

Everyone now believes in Arteta’s project, whether he wins or loses, because many have seen the promised land to which the Arsenal manager is taking them.

Interestingly, even Premier League coaches are praising Arteta’s work at Arsenal, as Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp admitted in his press conference on Friday (for the Chelsea game that ended in a 0-0 draw).

“That’s the biggest problem. Honestly, Arsenal deserves where they are at the moment. They play outstanding football, top, top, top,” Klopp said. Other than Klopp, Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag has also poured praise on Arteta’s work at Arsenal, naming him as one of the best PL coaches, if not the best coach. “I think in the Premier League, there are many incredible managers in this moment,” said Erik Ten Hag in an interview with Football Daily.

“He is definitely one of them, but what he is doing in this moment, he is the best of them.

“It’s a really big performance; it’s really huge what he’s doing in this moment.

“He is managing his team so they are so consistent, the most consistent team in the Premier League at this moment, playing incredibly good football.”

True to Ten Hag’s words, Arsenal is the most consistent team; their 13-game unbeaten streak speaks for itself. Arsenal’s 3-2 win over Manchester United was not only sweet retribution for their earlier season loss to Manchester United, but it also proved Arsenal sceptics wrong.

All Arsenal fans know this season is for winning; the results speak for themselves.

  1. A fan once said, Arteta is smart and hungry which is a dangerous combination to have, which will be bad for Arsenal.

    Would be interesting to get his honest take here, have no grudges for the fan as I saw the same traits in the gaffer, just that I saw the positive side to it.

  2. Fans who called for his sacking will hopefully have learned from this. Like I have learned from being too quick in writing off a player, I speak of Nketiah

    1. I remember when he started as manager, thinking he’s saying and doing all the right things, but then at some point during the rebuilding process, he did some things that really made me question. One of them was sticking with auba for the first 6 months of the season, twice, I expect just hoping to play him back into form. I didn’t like that because it seemed to be contradictory to his message that you had to earn your place. I think things really started to change when he finally got rid of auba.
      The other that I always said made me turn on arteta was convincing xhaka to stay – again it felt wrong because he wasn’t playing well, but the difference was that xhaka was actually trying. It was me that got it wrong on that one of course, but at the time, it just seemed like we were trying to stick with someone who’d had his chances and failed. In the end that was one of arteta’s greatest moves so far.

      1. DAVI , total agreement !

        I am one of MA’s most staunch supporters but I HAVE SEVERAL TIMES POSTED THAT I too thought he made many mistakes whilst learning the job.

        He has NOW learned but I WANTED OZIL and AUBA gone FAR sooner than was the eventual case.

        I would never have foreseeen the huge transformation in Xhaka though. Huge credit to MA and Xhaka!

        Better late though than never, as results and our fine dressing room harmony and desire have amply shown.

  3. An article which started so promisingly, but which then failed to say anything much of substance at all and, rather disappointingly, simply petered out……!
