Following Arsene Wenger’s induction into the Premier League Hall of Fame, Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta expressed his admiration for the club’s previous legendary manager.
Wenger was inducted alongside his old adversary and former legendary Manchester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, a few days ago.
The 73-year-old, who joined Arsenal in 1996, was one of the Premier League’s first international managers.
Wenger remained at Arsenal until 2018, having brought a number of revolutionary football philosophies to the English game.
Arteta, who played under Wenger during his playing career, responded by saying his old manager deserved to be in the Premier League Hall of Fame.
“There’s no doubt, he deserves to be there, and I’m so proud of him and to have been a part of his career as a player,” the Spaniard said ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Leeds United on Sunday.
“What he’s done for the club and football in general; he’s someone exceptional who deserves a huge place in the football world,” says the club’s president.
