Man City No2 Arteta happy in his role

Mikel Arteta says he's happy in his role as Manchester City assistant manager.

The Catalan was considered by Arsenal and Everton last year.

But he told Marca: "There will always be a link, but from here to the future you can not know what will happen. I'm happy where I am. I feel fulfilled for now.

"I've been with City for three years and I love this work. Being a head coach is something that will come naturally. For now, I will continue with Pep in the City.

"I value a lot where I am and the training I have. I have found the right person, staff and club for this time of my professional life. I share, from the 'cradle' of Barça, many ideas with Guardiola, and I'm not in a hurry to be the first coach.

"Many things have to happen. I will take the step forward."
