Mikel Arteta Says He Has A Secret Mole Close To Marcelo Bielsa As Arsenal Face Leeds United

published at4 days ago

In the pre-match press conference, Guardiola spoke glowingly about the Argentine gaffer.

The ex-Barcelona coach says 'El Loco' is the person he admires the most in world football.

"He is probably the person I admire the most in world football - as a manager and as a person," he said.

"I think he is the most authentic manager all the time. In terms of how he conducts his teams, he is unique.

"Nobody can imitate him, it's impossible, especially his behaviour as a person off the pitch and related to the media.

"I was fortunate sometimes. I don't see him quite as much - now, when I get the pleasure to spend time with him, it's always inspirational for me.

"The value of the manager does not depend on how many titles he has won. My teams have won more titles than him but in terms of knowledge of the game, I am still below him.

"His teams are always a joy to watch; how honest they are, they always want to attack and produce good football for the spectators."
