GUARDIOLA NAMES HIS SUCCESSOR AT MAN CITY; IS PEP LEAVING SOON?

Read Time:1 Minute, 29 Second

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has hailed his “incredible” assistant manager Mikel Arteta, tipping the Spaniard to replace him as manager when he leaves.

The Spaniard emerged as one of the front-runners for the Gunners job after Arsene Wenger retired in 2018, but wanted to stay and learn at the Ethiad.

Guardiola has been assisted by the former Arsenal and Everton midfielder since he joined the club, and he is confident that Arteta is the right man to replace him when he eventually leaves.

“Sooner or later it’s going to happen (Arteta becoming a manager). He’s a young, young manager. He has experience already, handling big players and big teams.

“He’s got an incredible work ethic. He has a special talent to analyse what happens and to find solutions.

“We talk a lot about what he believes and how he feels.”

here is no indication that Guardiola will leave City anytime soon, claiming he “will stay for two more years and hopefully another one” when he was linked with the Juventus job in the summer.

But the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss hasn’t stayed longer than four years at any of his previous clubs

The 48-year-old has not just praised Arteta’s coaching ability on the pitch, but also his character and morals off it.

Guardiola said: “He’s a guy who’s so happy when we win but also suffers a lot when we don’t.

“He’s an incredible person, an incredible human being, with incredible values about the dressing room and what it means to be together.

“He’s already an incredible, incredible manager. He will have incredible success in the future.”

Arteta had a playing career which spanned across 17 years, six clubs and four countries, including over 250 appearances in the Premier League.
