Tottenham Hotspur: Fans react as Mikel Arteta appointed Arsenal manager

Tottenham Hotspur: Fans react as Mikel Arteta appointed Arsenal manager - Tottenham

Arsenal have appointed Mikel Arteta as their new permanent manager, with the Spaniard signing a deal which will keep him at the Emirates until 2022 (arsenal.com).

He replaces Unai Emery in the dugout after the ex-Sevilla boss was sacked by the north London club in November.

The 37-year-old has built up a strong reputation as a coach in recent times having spent the last three-and-a-half years as Pep Guardiola’s assistant manager.

Arsenal’s local rivals Tottenham Hotspur have also changed manager this season, dismissing Mauricio Pochettino and replacing him with Jose Mourinho. Indeed, the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ was reported by the Times to have met Arsenal earlier this season during Unai Emery’s reign in charge.

And it seems that Spurs fans think that they have got the better deal, hiring a manager who has won several honours as opposed to a rookie who will be taking his first steps as a number one.

Plenty of Tottenham supporters have been reacting to the news that their rivals have appointed Arteta, with quite a few seemingly mocking the decision to hire the Spaniard.
