Mikel Arteta revealed his desire for Arsene Wenger to return to the club as he would be delighted to have him close. Wenger left Arsenal after 22 years in charge and is now working with FIFA as the head of global football development. Arteta played under Wenger for five years before moving to Man City to take up a coaching role under Pep Guardiola. He moved back to Arsenal as their head coach towards the end of 2019.
“I spoke to him when we went to see the film (Arsene Wenger: Invincible). It was incredibly pleasant to see him and to chat to him.” Mikel Arteta said talking about Arsene Wenger. “Hopefully we can bring him close because I think he would have a great time just seeing the environment that he can create around him when he’s around this place, because of the respect, admiration, and love that everybody at the club has for what he’s done and for what he represents as a person in this club.”
“I cannot tell you now, but what I can say is that I would like him to be much closer personally to me because I think he will be a great help,” he added. “I think he will be a great help for the club. Things take time and I think he has to dictate those timings, but what I can say is that from my side and I think it on behalf of everybody, we would be delighted to have him much closer.”
