Ex-Arsenal captain Cesc: Players really enjoy playing for Arteta

Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas believes the players are happy playing for manager Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal struggled last season, finishing eighth in the Premier League and flopping in the Europa League.

But Marseille midfielder Cesc told talkSPORT: "He's a guy that loves football. He knows what he is doing. He has got a clear idea of where he wants to go.

"Even now, if you speak to some of the players, they will tell you that they really enjoy playing under him.

"That the training is well. They feel prepared and they know what they are doing. Still, he is a very young manager.

"He was very lucky and he did very well in terms of being next to Pep. It was like a super preparation for a young coach – it's a difficult job, it really is. Where he got the club or where the club should be.

"I think Edu and the board believe a lot in him. And hopefully, he can be the man to bring this team forward."
