According to Wenger, Mikel Arteta ‘has the qualities’ seeing that he was a good leader when he was with the club and he has good passion for the game.
Recall that NIGERIA NEWS earlier reported that the Spanish ex-Gunners Captain, who is currently an assistant coach to Pepe Guardiola at Manchester City, has already held advanced negotiations with the Arsenal Biard and should agree his deal soon.
In an interview with beIN Sports on Thursday, Wenger said: “He was a leader, has good passion for the game, knows the club and knows what is important at the club.
“Overall he has the qualities but I don’t want to influence that publicly.
“I believe it is important they make their choice in an objective way and after that decision, I will support him.”
