Why MIKEL Will Be Arsenal’s Manager In The Future

Former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta is reportedly regarded as a potential replacement for manager Arsene Wenger.

According to the Telegraph, the Gunners are planning for life after Wenger, who still has 18 months left on his current deal at the Emirates Stadium following his renewal at the end of last season.

Arteta played for Arsenal in the closing stages of his career and displayed tactical intelligence during his playing days, with many touting him as a future manager.

Following his retirement, he was recruited by Pep Guardiola upon his arrival at Manchester City, with the Spaniard working as the former Barcelona manager’s assistant coach.

The 35-year-old is claimed to have received an offer from Arsenal to join up with their coaching staff, but the chance to work alongside Guardiola proved to be too tempting a proposition.

Wenger is somewhat unlikely to continue beyond his current contract and it seems Arteta is one of the front runners to replace him at the helm.

Let us keep our fingers crossed as the new manager is chosen when Wenger exhausts his contract.
