HIRED! Will Arsenal board back Mikel Arteta during rebuild? | Premier League
ESPN FC’s Craig Burley, Shaka Hislop, Gab Marcotti and Frank Leboeuf react to reports of Arsenal reaching an agreement with Manchester City assistant coach Mikel Arteta to be the club’s next manager. Leboeuf says he is surprised Pep Guardiola let Arteta go to a rival club in the middle of the season and thinks it’s a “nice signing” for the Gunners. Burley believes this is an “exciting approach” for Arsenal by hiring an unknown commodity while Hislop expresses concerns over the club’s board and whether they will back the new manager during a rebuilding phase.
