Mikel Arteta describes the ‘inspirational’ Man City man as one of the best he has ever seen in “Transformed.”.

Mikel Arteta claims that Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has been a major source of inspiration for him.


This season, when City travels to north London to play Arsenal at the Emirates, the two managers—former coworkers—will see their teams compete against one another for the first time in the Premier League.


The Gunners manager has discussed his upcoming opponent and the influence he has had on his career in the lead-up to this crucial match.

Arteta emphasizes Guardiola’s impact.

Arteta had the following to say about Guardiola in a recent video posted on the Sky Sports Premier League YouTube channel.


In my career, he has been a huge source of inspiration, he claimed. First and foremost, as a player, as he was the captain and I was in Barcelona.


“Then, when I had a closer friendship, whether it was at work or off the field, I became a coach.

He’s someone who has truly changed me and who has greatly aided in changing the way I view both football and life.



Arteta certainly has enough experience working with the 52-year-old to be able to have benefited so much from him in terms of his own managerial career after serving as Guardiola’s assistant manager at City for more than three years.



The Arsenal manager has managed 10 games against Guardiola, but has only been able to win two of them while suffering eight losses.



Arsenal’s improvement under Arteta’s leadership is highlighted by the fact that Manchester United had to pass the Gunners toward the end of the previous Premier League season.


While both managers will undoubtedly want to see their teams win in tomorrow’s important match in north London, the Citizens’ loss to Wolves in their most recent league match suggests to us that they will be doing everything in their power to return to winning ways and leave with three points in the bag.
