Arteta Reveals Instant Edu Connection
New Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says he experienced an instant connection with the club’s Technical Director Edu Gaspar upon taking the job over Christmas.
Like Edu, Arteta was a distinguished former midfield player with the club and the Spaniard says he has instantly hit it off with Edu.
“I don’t know, sometimes it happens with people, but he called me and we started to have a conversation which should have lasted just a few minutes and we went long.
“We shared a lot of things in our career and we have a lot of similarities,” Arteta told the club’s official website.
“Then the way we were thinking about the situation and became very close and with the ideas, I agree with that. ‘I will do this,’ ‘me too’. It started to build that relationship like this. The chemistry was there from day one.
Arteta added: “He was part of the most exciting and successful times for this football club so he knows exactly what needs to be done.”
