Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has come out to react to him and Frank Lampard being considered the next Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.
He recently revealed that he admires Lampard but he is not ready to be seen as a natural successor to successful Klopp and Guardiola in England.
According to him, Lampard has shown that he can be an incredible player and an excellent manager, so he is definitely ready to win titles like the top coaches in the division.
He added that he also wants to win the FA Cup because trust can be earned when titles are won.
His words, “About Frank as a player, absolutely top,”
“I think the consistency he was able to play for that many years in the position he plays at such a big club and doing what he did was incredible. Big credit to him on that.”
“As a manager, he has shown since Derby the kind of ambition and person he has and the way he encourages his team to play. We are both young, both trying to learn our position so I wouldn’t like to compare to the two managers you mention.”
“It generates trust when you’re winning titles,”
“It generates moments when together you go through good emotions. It brings everyone together, you have memories, there’s a lot of things about winning a trophy that is so positive for any group and when you’re in a process it makes it even more important. We have a great opportunity, so let’s go for it.”
