Arsenal boss Arteta: I still talk with Guardiola everyday

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has admitted that he still talks to Pep Guardiola every day.

Despite leaving the assistant job at Manchester City, there are no ill feelings between Guardiola and Arteta.

In fact, Guardiola was always the first one to praise Arteta and say he could be a great manager one day.

And Arteta has revealed they still speak daily.

"Absolutely I miss working with Pep," Arteta told reporters.

"I am a big friend of his and I admire him so much.

"We had a lot of joy and a lot of success working together and I always talk with him.

"We share a lot of things in our life and we discuss everything.

"He was a big part of my development as a person. A lot of the experiences I have gone through have been next to him.

"It was a privilege to work with him and of course I took a lot of things on board.

"I have known him since my time as a young player at Barcelona and I have learned a lot of things from his time in management."
