After making the switch from Manchester city to the gunners, the 37 years old has explained how the city boss has prepared him for the role.
Arsenal new boss Mikel Arteta has claimed being ruthless and consistent is what makes Pep Guadiola such a successful manager.
Arteta was announced as Arsenal’s new permanent head coach on Friday, with Freddie Ljungberg having been in interim charge since Unai Emery was sacked in November.
Pep work rate is incredible. How inspirational he is to people is incredible,but to me the secret is the players and staff have to believe what you deliver. You have to be able to transmit it and then people will buy into that.
When you do that, you have a team, everyone is united and we will be strong.
The former midfielder insists his relationship with Guardiola and city remains intact, even though the timing of his departure could prove troublesome.
The relationship between him and me is incredibly good. Obviously, he was sad, the timing wasn’t the best for him, but he understood, ” Arteta said.
