Some Arsenal fans may change their stance on Mikel Arteta potentially becoming our next manager after seeing this heartwarming interview from the Spaniard.
After his final game for the Gunners back in 2016, our former captain can be seen holding back the tears as he struggles to comprehend how ‘honoured’ he felt to play for us.
Arteta enjoyed five years at the Emirates Stadium, the retired midfielder won the FA Cup and Community Shield on two occasions during his time in north London.
It’s fitting that this clip emerges now that the Manchester City assistant is being heavily linked with our managerial vacancy.
The Daily Mail claimed that Arteta held talks with Arsenal chief Josh Kroenke last night, it’s reported that the meeting between the pair was set to act as the third and final step of the Spaniard’s interview process.
Take a look at the Spaniard’s emotional final interview below:

Arteta was an amazing servant to us on the pitch and this interview perfectly highlights his love for the club, this surely makes him a prime managerial candidate.
For all the things that a manager can be questioned on, at least the 37-year-old’s passion and desire for the club would never be in doubt.
I think he should e given a Chance and us Fans should get behind him I feel ashamned AT some of these Fans that nothing seems to please them no other Club seems to moan and complain like us Give him a chance
Arsenal don’t need flowery words and nice speeches from their players. Arsenal need real actions from them on the field
A coach can only train and give instructions, but it is the players who will decide the outcome of a game in the end
If a player doesn’t have high level of commitment and depends so much on his teammates to win the ball for him, Arsenal will practically play with less player. All those talking are useless
Not really the point of the article mate. Just showing a guy who loved the club. It’s a plus. Debate the other pros and cons on more appropriate posts.
If would nice if, every now and then, we could just briefly abstain from negativity.
No one is quastioning hos love for the club or his professionalism .
We just dont think he has what we are looking for RIGHT now.we need a seasoned gaffer,with a strong character to beat these boys into shape.
I mean we spent over 100million in the summer but regressed on the pitch,how is that even possible?
We need an Army general with a stick
I agree a 100%.
AKB – Arteta Knows Best 😜
Aww that’s made me a little emosh!! 🥺
And I’m sorry to go completely off topic, but come on Villa!!! It should’ve been us 🥺 (still emosh 😆)
