Hector Bellerin says Arsenal are on the right path under Mikel Arteta

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has said that the Gunners are moving on the right path under manager Mikel Arteta and believes the club will find their goalscoring touch sooner rather than later. The Spanish head coach has made the Gunners difficult to beat over the past month but that has somewhat reduced their effectiveness on the other end of the field.
As a result, they have drawn more than 50 percent of the games under Arteta but Bellerin insists that there has been a big change in the attitude of the players from the Unai Emery reign, he told: “Mikel has always been very tactical in his work and in his whole life, he’s very professional with very clear ideas. It’s very early doors in time. [Mikel] has a new philosophy and the way he has implemented it in the last few games that we’ve played, there’s been a big change. When you see that you’re playing better and controlling games better, the goals are something that’s going to come. I’m sure you’re going to see that very quickly.”

Alan Smith backs Mikel Arteta for the head coach role at Arsenal

Arsenal legend Alan Smith has said that the Gunners have made a bold move to land the signature of Mikel Arteta. The Spaniard has been linked with a return to the Emirates in a managerial capacity since last month and reports have emerged that he could pen a three-and-a-half year contract in the next 24 hours.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, Smith believes the recruitment of Arteta would be an exciting and bold move, given he has been a huge influence on the Manchester City in an assistant capacity, he told: “From the outset I thought that he would be the most exciting, the boldest choice as an innovative young coach that can put on really good sessions and that transfers to the pitch. Obviously, he’s had a huge influence from [Pep] Guardiola up at Manchester City. He takes a lot of the sessions and Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne have both credited him with improving their game.”
