Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said there will always be rumours about coaches at big clubs getting sacked.
Guardiola stated this when asked about Mikel Arteta’s future at Arsenal, following a 5-0 loss to the Premier League champions on Saturday.
The result means the Gunners are yet to win or score in their first three league fixtures of the new campaign.
“We know our job in the big clubs there are always rumours when you don’t win.
“He helped me a lot to achieve what we achieved together. I learned a lot, he taught me many, many things. What we have at Man City now is thanks to him,” Guardiola said.
The City boss also claimed that Arsenal had tough fixtures to begin the season with and backed his former assistant to bounce back.
“I don’t have any doubts. He is so strong, he will recover, he will analyse and I am sure he will be back on track,” he added.
