Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has come out to say that he is looking forward to his return to the Etihad Stadium.
The Spaniard, however, revealed that the absence of fans will make it a bittersweet experience for him and the teams.
According to him, he is excited ahead of the game because he cannot wait to start competing again and doing what he loves the most, coaching.
He added that it will be a special day for him and he is expecting a great game.
His words, “It is going to be strange, I can’t deny that. I know everybody there and spent four magnificent years with those players and staff,”
“I am really excited as well, I can’t wait to start competing again and doing what we love most which is to play football. It is going to be very special for me and I am looking forward to it.”
“We have got a good measure with what is happening in the Bundesliga at the moment,”
“I hope it is going to help.
“Football is about passion and energy and when you lose that, it is balanced much more, but I know how strong they are and what they are able to do if they are all switched on so we have to be well prepared to go there and win the game.
“It better be right that playing away is an advantage because we are away four times in a row.”
