Yaya Toure is confident Arteta would succeed at Arsenal


Former Manchester City Midfielder, Yaya Toure says Arsenal would be lucky to have Mikel Arteta in their ranks, after learning few things from Pep Guardiola.

But the Ivorian admits the job is a tasking one, as the North London Club needs an immediate recovery from poor form.

“It’s going to be quite difficult. Why? Because Arsenal is struggling and I think if the directors of Arsenal listen to him and go in his way, maybe it’s going to work,” Toure said.

“All the time when you come in a new club which is struggling, you need the backing of your board to listen to you and do what you want. Obviously City have a lot more money [to spend] than Arsenal and I think it’s going to be quite complicated”.

“He’s very smart and he’s achieved a lot of experience in football games. I think he’s going to be good, good, good for Arsenal because Arsenal need a manager with a new mind and a new setup”.

“We’ve been identifying Arsenal with Arsene Wenger because Arsene Wenger was top drawer for them. I was so sad when I saw the fans arguing Arsene Wenger has to leave and now what is happening? Arsenal need a new vision of football”.
