Manchester City: Fans dismiss Arsenal interest in Mikel Arteta as managerial candidate

Former Arsenal cult hero, Mikel Arteta, who has been Pep Guardiola’s number two at Manchester City for the last three seasons, studying under his tutelage during an era littered with trophies, could now be on his way back to the Emirates. 

Is Arteta the right man for Arsenal?

Yes

Yes

No

No

According to the Daily Mirror, current Gunners boss Unai Emery has been given a month to turn Arsenal’s form around and save his job following a season to forget so far.

The North London outfit have picked up just two wins in their last seven games, including a 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace, putting real pressure on Emery heading into the Christmas period.

As a result, Arsenal are now linked with City assistant manager Arteta with the north Londoners reportedly eyeing both Arteta and Max Allegri to replace Emery – but Sky Blues supporters immediately dismissed the interest in a series of tweets.

The main consensus behind the Spaniard’s perceived unlikelihood of joining Arsenal is the strong theory that Arteta is being groomed as Guardiola’s future replacement at the Etihad – prompting most fans to dismiss the links as nonsense.

Here’s how they reacted.
