Pep Guardiola has learn a lot from Arteta during heir time together.
The Catalan manager insisted that he learned as much from the Arsenal manager as opposed to the other way around.
Guardiola has a superb record against Arsenal and has won 13 of his 14 top-flight matches since December 2015.
Mikel Arteta was Guardiola’s assistant for three-and-a-half years at Man City before he took over the managerial role in December 2019.
Guardiola insists there are no similarities between both managers and doesn’t want any credit for Arteta’s success.
He said: “No, not at all. I dress better. I am more elegant. My wife gives me the perfect outfit all the time!
“I see zero characteristics in him from me. His father and mother are different! All the success he has belongs to Mikel and his people at Arsenal – it’s down to them, not me, definitely.
“People say ‘ah yes, he was with Pep and learnt a lot.’ But I learnt a lot from him as well. People think it is always that way, how much I taught him. But he teaches me too and I learnt well.”
