Henry: Arteta has brought identity back to Arsenal

Montreal Impact coach Thierry Henry believes Mikel Arteta has brought an "identity" back to Arsenal.

He is impressed by how Arteta has forged an "identity" at Arsenal in a similar vein to Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

The Frenchman said: "First and foremost you can see an identity and togetherness. Like I always say, a game is long, to build a team, doesn't happen just like that overnight.

"I always use Klopp as an example. I remember when he first arrived he couldn't hold a lead. It took him years to be a competitive team.

"Now, everybody respects what he does and rightly so because he was a hell of a manager."
