‘Incredible’ – Rival player hails Arteta’s coaching style

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s training methods have been praised by Manchester City striker Phil Foden calling him an incredible coach.

VERIFICATION: MANDATE TO ARSENAL MIXTE

Mikel Arteta and Phil Foden worked together during his tenure as assistant manager of Manchester City. He was at the Etihad between July 2016 and December 2019. During that time, City won several trophies, including two Premier League titles and an FA Cup.

Following the dismissal of Unai Emery, Arteta took the next step in his career by becoming Arsenal’s first team manager. In the first eight months of his tenure at the Emirates, the Spaniard won the FA Cup, beating Chelsea 2-1 in the final to help the Gunners claim a 14th title in the competition and followed it up with success in the community shield.

Arsenal missed out on European football in their first full spell in north London before returning to the Europa League last season.

THE LAST: MORE PRAISE FOR ARTETA

Mikel Arteta’s managerial approach has impressed Manchester City star Phil Foden as revealed in his latest interview.

During an interview with Amazon Prime VideoEnglishman says: “[He’s] unbelievable. I remember working closely with him after training on some things I needed to improve. I know how good he can be as a coach. He is definitely an excellent coach. »

Foden isn’t the only person to talk about Arteta’s coaching methods recently. Former Arsenal player Kevin Campbell was also impressed, saying the Spaniard was working hard to prepare his side for matches.

Moreover, former Arsenal team-mate Jack Wilshere recently praised the Spaniard saying: “Play with [Arteta], he was a very focused guy, very smart with the way he trained. As a coach he is very similar. He is very intense, very active with the players and tries different things and new techniques to try to help them. I like it. He is a modern coach.

THE VERDICT: GOOD REPORT, BUT MUST DELIVER

Mikel Arteta has been praised many times by former teammates, players and fans, but it’s time to work and deliver. He oversaw a squad overhaul in the summer and after spending almost three years in charge of the Gunners, the rewards should already be rolling in.

The 40-year-old is certainly becoming a very good coach. He has also shown in recent matches that he is also tactically sound. The Gunners have started the season well, top of the table after three games, and many fans believe a return to the UEFA Champions League should not be difficult this time around.
