“Arteta always had great management potential” – Arsenal’s success came as...

The former Gunners striker saw enough of the Spaniard’s matchdays to suggest he was capable of becoming a top coach

Mikel Arteta “always had great management potential,” says Nicklas Bendtner. The Spaniard’s success at Arsenal came as no surprise to a former team-mate.

A Danish striker was on the Gunners’ books when a classic midfielder was first brought to north London in 2011.

Arteta later became the captain of Emirates Stadium and spent five years at Arsenal before hanging his boots.

Coaching teeth were then cut alongside Pep Guardiola in Manchester City before setting off on their own in December 2019.

The Gunners’ decision to turn to a familiar face for inspiration has brought an immediate return. FA Cup and Community Shield honors have been claimed.

A top 4 result is also being chased in 2020-21, with a fallen giant bouncing back on its feet.

Bendtner never had any doubt that Arteta could be the man who could get Arsenal back in the right direction. Leadership and tactical skills had come into their own in his match days.

The former Gunners front man said that Podcast „In Lockdown“: “It’s just his whole person.

“The way he’s always tried to improve not just himself but everyone around him; the young players and the older players.

“The way he carried himself and just his personality in general, all you knew was that one day he would become a manager.

“Even now, working with Arsenal, you can see how he tries to make his own mark on the team and do it his way.

“I really hope he will be successful because I would love to see Arsenal come back among the trophies. He always had great management potential. ”

Arteta has seen his Arsenal side take nine points in their first four Premier League games this season.

There is still room for improvement in their performances as they try to find the consistency their game has been lacking for so long but positive steps forward are being taken.

However, they will face another rigorous test of their qualifications when they return to the national team after the international break. Arteta will celebrate a reunion with Guardiola and City on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium.
