Guardiola backing Arteta for great success at Arsenal

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is backing Mikel Arteta for great success at Arsenal.

Guardiola's Manchester City meet Arteta's Arsenal in the first FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Saturday, only seven months since Arteta left his job as Guardiola's assistant to take over in north London.

"I'm pretty sure the right person to bring them back up is there now," said Guardiola.

"When the club support him they have the right man.

"I've a feeling he is creating something unique, if they give him what he needs they'll be a contender in future years."
