Mikel Arteta believes that there are some good managers that might be interested in taking charge of a club such as Arsenal. He said that the club already has a good squad and that they also have a loyal fan base.
He said that a decision should be made soon if they want to replace Arsene Wenger as this can have an impact on the performance of the players.
Mikel Arteta said that he feel sorry for Arsene Wenger as he has invested so much time and energy in the team and that he would have love to win more trophies with the club. However, he feels that the players are no longer responding to his methods and that the club is struggling on the pitch.
