Premier League Guardiola is the best coach in the world by mile – Arteta

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has praised Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola ahead of their Premier League clash on Sunday.

Asked on his relationship with the Man City boss, Arteta said: “It had to change, but my admiration and what I feel for him, certainly not. In my opinion, he is the best coach in the world by a mile and is one of the nicest people that I have met in football, certainly one of the ones that I have had more fun and a laugh working with, and that’s going to stay there forever.

“Obviously our roles at the moment are what they are and you have to adapt to the situation. It is what it is, but that happens the same in relationships with players. I had some teammates here and then you become the coach and that relationship has to adapt. You cannot feel differently about the person but professionally you have to act differently.”

On the way Guardiola has innovated the sport, he said: “I know the passion that he lives the game, the intelligence, the way he handles his team and the club as well, and how demanding he is, and then he has an incredible work ethic.

“That’s something that people don’t see; it’s a lot of work behind the scenes and he’s managed to do it for three different clubs at the top league level every single season, and that’s a huge quality.”
