With Unai Emery being sacked, the job as Arsenal manager has been left wide open. And apparently, Man City’s assistant manager Mikel Arteta might be considering the gig.
Man City boss Pep Guardiola, however, does not have anything against Arteta leaving Manchester City as Arsenal’s next manager. Of course, Guardiola obviously won’t be delighted with Arteta leaving.
After the 3-0 Emirates win, Pep Guardiola admitted that he won’t get in the way of Mikel Arteta becoming the new Arsenal manager. Arsenal is currently ninth in the table in the Premier League.
Further, according to sources, Arsenal director Vinai Venkatesham was seen exiting Arteta’s house in Manchester in the early hours of the morning after City thrashing.
“He’s an important, important part (of Manchester City’s set-up).
“If it happens, it will happen,” Pep said.
“When he wants to talk we are open to talk but it’s private, I don’t want to make things uncomfortable.”
The club’s legal counselor and agreement moderator Huss Fahmy was additionally observed advancing out of the house and into the vehicle at 1.20am.
Moreover, there was a two-hour meeting in the North West.
If Arteta does join Arsenal, it would be a huge loss for Pep’s team who are already lacking experienced leadership besides their manager.
