“We were all guided in a way, or made to feel in a different way about the game because we had Arsene as a manager,” Arteta said.

“He started the fire in us to be a coach. Not only in me or probably in Patrick, but in many others, with his way of treating everybody at the club and with how he felt the game.”

Wenger’s record with Arsenal is incredible; he managed to win 476 games and garner 17 trophies during his time with the gunners.

But with someone as successful as Wenger, managers like Arteta are bound to receive constant comparisons from the great coach.

“You have no choice (about comparisons),” he said.

“You have the choice to say ‘no, I don’t want to take that job because they are always going to compare me’.

“But if you love what you want to do and you feel capable of achieving what you think you can achieve for that club, then it is your decision to take it up.”

Arsenal seems to be struggling this season, standing at 13th in the Premier League table. Meanwhile, Arteta has enough time to turn things around before the management and fans grow tired of him.
