Arsenal to hold talks with Thierry Henry over manager's position

Share

Mikel Arteta was seen as a wildcard when Arsenal started to look for a replacement for Arsene Wenger but after the original favourites including Max Allegri and Julian Nagelsmann ruled themselves out, Arteta looks to be the front-runner to be the new Arsenal manager.

The Frenchman - who signed Spanish midfielder Arteta from Everton in 2011 - believes the Manchester City assistant manager is a "leader" who has the right "passion" to coach Arsenal as they embark upon a new era.

Wenger ended his 22-year reign as Arsenal boss last season with a number of potential names being mentioned to succeed him among which include Arteta.

City's title challenge had been weakened following defeats to Chelsea and Leicester City, but ahead of the crucial fixture against Arsenal, Guardiola privately told Arteta that he would be in charge for the game against his former club.

'I believe it is important they make their choice in an objective way and after made that decision I will support him'.

"I haven't even emptied my desk yet and in a way I am still in a state of shock".

While the 36-year-old has no managerial experience, Guardiola, speaking after his side reached the 100-point mark with a final-day victory at Southampton on Sunday, praised Arteta's role in the success and said he would not stand in his way if Arsenal came calling.

"No, not at all", he said when asked if he'd been involved.

"At the moment if I want to continue to work, I think I have to move out of the country, because my gut feeling at the moment is that I would feel I would betray my club by staying in England".

"It's just too soon to know what I will do next", he confessed.

"I want to continue to defend my ideas of football, that's for sure". He has also, only been assistant manager for just two seasons and assumedly isn't completely in a position to take up the job which entails various responsibilities both on and off the pitch.

"But they didn't ask me, so that takes the weight away from me..." I get bored. I need to be doing something.
