Arsenal fans have been left excited after a video of Mikel Arteta leading the team in training emerged.
In the clip, the Spaniard is seen talking to the first-team squad about passing the ball as he mentions the four things they were going to be working on: Ball, teammate, opponent and space (via Arsenal).
One fan compared Arteta’s ‘rondo’ training drill to that of predecessor Unai Emery’s, claiming they already have more ‘purpose’ under the former Manchester City assistant manager.
His one day of Rondos already has more purpose than any we ever saw from Emery where Rondos where about how many you could make in a row https://t.co/IbfgrCgyl1
