Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, has given a vote of thanks to his Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola for his part in mentoring him as a manager after the Gunners’ FA Cup final 2-1 win over Chelsea on Saturday.
Arsenal defeated Chelsea at the Wembley Stadium after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace to cancel Christian Pulisic goal for Frank Lampard’s side.
Recall that Arteta was Guardiola’s assistant at Man City for three years, learning from one of the best managers in the world, before replacing Unai Emery at Arsenal last December.
Speaking after winning his first trophy as Arsenal manager, Arteta gave thanks to Guardiola while speaking to newsmen.
“I miss my family so much they have been all the way with me,” Arteta told BT Sport.
“Thank you, as well. I have to thank Pep in a very big way because I am a manager in a big part to him so I think I have to consider that as well.”
