Newcastle host the Gunners today.
Pardew said: “I think clubs can learn from Arsenal. What a job he has done there. I know it’s some time since he won a trophy but no one can ever take away from him what he has achieved, especially that ‘Invincibles’ season.
“I really hope he wins the Champions League this season. I think he deserves it for the career he has had.
“I think longevity is important, I really do. There is a lot of decision-making for managers these days and only an experienced manager can make those decisions.
“But a lot of decisions are being taken away from us. Some are right and proper, especially about finance. When I was at Reading, I used to do all that.
“But there are other decisions that are being made, not particularly at this club but at other clubs, that I think are making it difficult for managers.
“It’s difficult to get longevity because there’s not that loyalty. I think the game needs to look at that.’’
