Arteta Covid-19 Long term Effect on Arsenal

It has been a struggle for arsenal for a long time now up until Mikel became in charge.

Before Mikel Arteta was made the boss for the Arsenal team early this season, there was so much debate on who the best coach to take over after Unai would be. At the top fright was Ancherotti alongside Artena looking to get the job but for some reason, Arteta got the job. Ancelotti went on to join Everton at around the same time as Arteta.

How Arteta got the job

Mourinho and the former Barcelona coach were also linked to Arsenal but spurs made the move faster to get Mourinho. As things stand, Luis Enrique. This is if for any reason Arteta can’t get back to coaching in the near future.
