Arsenal fans love that former boss Arsene Wenger has given his full support for the seemingly incoming Mikel Arteta.
Would Arteta be worth £5m a year?
Wenger also went on to say that the Manchester City assistant coach will need ‘the right people’ around him due to his lack of experience.
Arteta’s only real coaching experience has been his assistant role alongside Pep Guardiola, who has given the 37-year-old a ringing endorsement.
Guardiola claimed that Arteta is ‘smart’ and went on to say that he has the skill set to manage at the top level (via The Telegraph).
Fans were left excited by Wenger’s comments as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:

That’s a proper fan right there. We support who’s in charge even if he isn’t our first choice
