Arsenal

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta outlines future managerial plans with PSG admission


Mikel Arteta hinted he’d like to manage Paris-Saint Germain one day – but said he has “a lot of work to do” at Arsenal first.

The Gunners boss wants his pal Mauricio Pochettino to have a long and successful reign in the PSG hotseat.

But he opened the door to following in his former team-mate’s footsteps at the Parc des Princes.

Arteta spent half a season at PSG on loan from Barcelona, and played with Pochettino, who joined the club the day after the Spaniard.

And the Arsenal boss suggested he would like the chance to manage the Ligue 1 outfit in the future.

“I love Paris, I love Paris,” Arteta told BeIN Sports FR. “I have very good memories from over there.

“It was my first club as a professional. The club is always in my heart.

“You never know but I have a lot of work to do [at Arsenal].”

Arteta hopes to see Pochettino succeed at PSG after replacing sacked Thomas Tuchel in January.

The club are top of Ligue 1, and face a revenge mission against Bayern Munich in the last eight of the Champions League after being beaten by the Bundesliga giants in last year’s final.

“PSG have an incredible team,” said Arteta. “The manager Mauricio Pochettino is a coach that I am close to because I played with him at PSG.

“He is a very very strong manager and I hope that he will win a lot of titles with PSG.”

Arteta is 10 years younger than Pochettino and has had a mixed start to his embryonic managerial career.

His Gunners team are languishing in ninth place in the Premier League, but are into the quarter-finals of the Europa League as they look to build on last season’s FA Cup triumph.

Arsenal’s last-eight opponents are Slavia Prague – conquerors of Rangers and Leicester City in previous rounds – with the ties to be played on April 8 and 15.
