Spanish coach set to hold talks over Arsenal job this week

  Spanish coach set to hold talks over Arsenal job this week Arsenal are planning to hold talks with Mikel Arteta on Thursday over becoming the club’s next manager. Twitter: Arsenal having talks with Mikel Arteta on Thursday. Executives who will choose new manager to replace Arsene Wenger… (@SkyKaveh) Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol claims that the Arsenal Executives will also be meeting on Thursday to discuss who will land the job. Arteta has been heavily touted with landing the role at Arsenal since it was announced that Arsene Wenger would be leaving the club. It was revealed earlier this month that Wenger would be stepping down at the end of the season, after 22 years at the club. Despite a number of high profile managers being linked with the job, it appears as though Arteta is their first choice – despite having no previous senior experience in charge of a team. He has been a part of Pep Guardiola’s backroom team at Manchester City for the past two seasons, including their record-breaking title success this season.

Mikel Arteta and Massimiliano Allegri may be the wrong choices to succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal , says Paul Merson. He plays the right kind of football and has proved he can handle the pressure of a big job .”

But, that doesn’t make Arteta anymore an intellectual genius than Steve Bould – who has evidently not been given permission at Arsenal to do captain is a shoe in for this job or anywhere near capable of bringing the qualities that Arsenal need to, first, clear up the detritus Wenger left behind, then go

"He has all the qualities to do the job, yes and I think as well he is one of the favourites," Wenger told beIN SPORTS.

"He was a leader and he has a good passion for the game and he knows the club well, he knows what is important at the club and he was captain of the club. Why not?

"I left a lot of experience behind me, people who were with me like Steve Bould who has six years' experience, and Jens Lehmann too. He [Arteta] has been an assistant of Guardiola as well, so overall I think he has the qualities."

Wenger will not be involved in the board's decision over his successor at Arsenal, though.

"I don't want to influence [the appointment] publicly," Wenger said.

"Because for me I believe it is important that they make their choice in an objective way and after they make a decision I will support them."

Mikel Arteta to consider Santi Cazorla for backroom role .
Mikel Arteta plans to offer his former team-mate Santi Cazorla a backroom role at Arsenal, if he becomes the next manager. According to the Mirror, Arteta wants to win over the supporters and he plans to bring in fan-favourite Santi Cazola for the transition of Arsenal, post-Wenger. Cazorla, who has been at Arsenal since 2012, has been out with a serious injury for the past 19 months. But in the games he has played, he has wooed over the supporters and plans of him joining the backroom staff could be what gets the fans on Arteta’s side. Former Arsenal midfielder Arteta, is now the favourite to succeed Arsene Wenger in the next few weeks, after the club finished the interview process. This follows the news that rival candidates for the post have continued to rule themselves, leaving Arteta as the only serious candidate. Juventus manager Massimiliano Allgeri is now out of the running after pledging his allegiance to the Serie A champions, while Hoffenheim insist that their coach Julian Nagelsmann will be going nowhere. New York City boss and Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira has been also interviewed, but it has since been revealed that he has not received any response. Moving forward, Arteta is considered as what Arsenal are looking for in the wake of Wenger. He has worked as a coach for just two seasons, most notably at Manchester City who were recently crowned Premier League champions. But Arteta hasn’t managed on any level and some Gunners supporters are unsure they want an untried manager taking over the reins.
