Arsene Wenger has shown just how much he still loves Arsenal as he analysed current Gunners manager Mikel Arteta.
Arteta's side remain in pole position for a top four finish and a return to the Champions League after beating Leicester City 2-0 on Sunday afternoon.
His tenure as manager has now been analysed by legendary former Arsenal boss Wenger in a new interview with Richard Keys and Andy Gray for beIN Sports.
Wenger refers to his old club as 'we' during his analysis of Arteta, showing he is still full of love for the club four years on from his departure.
Having been asked whether Arteta has recaptured the spirit of Arsenal, Wenger explained: “It looks like it, yes, I think so, yes, we still have some way to go because we were dominating in England for some time.
“All the ingredients are there, the club has invested a lot of money for the first time since we have built the stadium.
“The team is stable now with their results, his leadership looks to be accepted by the players and there is a connection between him and the team.
“So overall, what you see from outside is positive.”
Will Arsenal finish in the top four this season? Let us know in the comments section below.
Wenger was able to turn Arsenal into a dominant force in England during his 22 years as manager, winning three league titles and seven FA Cups.
He also oversaw the record breaking 'Invincibles' season and took Arsenal to their only Champions League final in 2006.
Arteta is now into his second season in charge in north London, having replaced Wenger's successor Unai Emery back in December 2019.
After winning the FA Cup later that season, the Gunners missed out on European qualification for the first time in 26 years.
