PL: Guardiola speaks on Arteta replacing Wenger
Ex-Gunner Arteta is one of the top candidates considered as a replacement for Arsene Wenger, who will step down after this season.
“We are so comfortable working with Arteta, he is one of the reasons we have been successful this season but I don’t know Arsenal’s plan.
“My opinion on Mikel is overwhelming,” Guardiola said during his pre-match press conference on Friday.
Guardiola also stated that his side are firmly focused on finishing the season on a good note.
“We had some days off and now we train for West Ham. If the records help us to be more focused then that is perfect.
“Our main target was to win the title and finish the season and then we will talk to the club about the players – who will stay and who will go,” the Spaniard added.
