​Sacked Arsenal boss Emery approves of Arteta appointment

Sacked Arsenal boss Unai Emery says the Gunners are making "a good decision" by appointing Mikel Arteta to replace him as manager.

Manchester City assistant boss Arteta was announced as the new Gunners boss on Friday.

"He really is prepared to make that next jump," said Emery.

"He has been at Arsenal before, he's been in the Premier League and he has been working with Pep Guardiola. I do believe this is a good decision and I would also like it to be a good decision."
