- Arteta has opened the door for Arsene Wenger to return to Arsenal
- Says it’ll be a huge boost to the club
Ekohotblog reports that Mikel Arteta has opened the door to Arsene Wenger returning to Arsenal and taking on a role at the club.
Wenger left Arsenal in 2018 after spending 22 years as the club’s manager and now works as chief of global football development at FIFA.
The Frenchman has since cut all ties with the Gunners and he is yet to return to Emirates Stadium to even watch a match.
But Arteta says he would like Wenger to be “more present”.
“I think he set a different tone at the club and there are things that are still there,” Arteta told Sky Sports News.
“I would like to recover a lot of things that he did and I would like him to be more present at the club.
“I think the players would love him, they will benefit, they will be inspired to have him around and I think for the club it would be a huge boost.”
Asked if that was an invitation to Wenger, Arteta said: “I always told him. Sometimes you need your time.
“It was so intense for him for over 20 years and you need to get away a little bit, but I think it would be so beneficial for all parties to have him more present.”
Arteta’s comment comes after Sir Alex Ferguson lambasted the club fans for the unfair treatment they showed Wenger during his final years at the club.
