Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka stated that he had never worked with a manager like Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal emerged as the team to beat in the 2022/23 Premier League season. The Gunners are currently leading the championship with 50 points in the tally. The North London side is 5 points ahead of its closest opponents Manchester City having played one match less.
Xhaka has praised Arteta and admitted that he was impressed with his qualities.
“Last season, we lost the first three games of the season. Some people were already at the end of their patience. But now you see what can happen when you give a coach time. After all, this is his first ever stint as head coach,” he told 20 min.
“He is something very special. I’ve had many coaches in my career, but never one like Arteta. He seems like he is focused only on football 24 hours a day. He always has a plan A, B – and maybe even a plan Z. But he’s not only top tactically, but he’s also top as a person.”
