Pep Guardiola has said he is certain Mikel Arteta, will succeed him as Manchester City manager.
Arteta emerged as one of the front-runners for the Arsenal job, after Arsene Wenger retired in 2018.
But the Spaniard chose to remain at the Etihad and continue as Guardiola’s assistant.
“I’m pretty sure [he’ll succeed me]. He will have success.
“Sooner or later it’s going to happen (Arteta becoming a manager). He’s a young, young manager. He has experience already, handling big players and big teams.
“He’s got an incredible work ethic. He has a special talent to analyse what happens and to find solutions.
“We talk a lot about what he believes and how he feels,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.
