Mikel Arteta has brought a different kind of energy to Arsenal, according to Joe Willock.
Willock has said there is an excitement building throughout the squad since the Spanish manager took charge at the Emirates stadium.
The defender added that everyone has noticed a difference in such a short period of time and he cannot wait for the future under their new coach.
His words, “For me, as a centre mid – because he played centre mid as well – he’s taught me a few different things about positioning, waiting for the centre back to drive out before I go,”
“It’s just timing and loads of different things, loads of different things that can make such a big difference on the pitch. He’s taught me all that already. I’m just really happy and really excited about the future, and how it’s going to go.
“He’s brought a different sort of energy and different sort of tactic that you can relate to more. I feel like everyone’s excited, there’s a big buzz around the changing room, and everyone’s laughing again.
“He’s worn the t-shirt, he’s played for Arsenal, he’s been with the staff members who are still here as well. For me, I just look up to him and I want to learn from him. I’m just looking forward to it.
“Everyone’s got their head up and we’re trying to build confidence in each other and on the pitch as well. I feel like hopefully, we can transmit that on the pitch.”
