Man City boss Guardiola won't block Arteta from Arsenal talks

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola won't block his No2 Mikel Artete from applying for the Arsenal job.

Guardiola said he would not object to Arteta taking the Arsenal manager's job should the Gunners decide to turn to their former player to succeed Unai Emery, who was dismissed on Friday morning.

"I said many times with my players, staff, they're free to do what they want to do," Guardiola said.

"With Mikel it's about being a friend.

"I want the best for him. What I want is we stay together this season and next season, but I don't know what's the best for him."
