Mikel Arteta looks to Jurgen Klopp for inspiration during Arsenal rebuild. The Gunners boss knows it won’t be as simple as a cut-and-paste.
He has hailed Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool for laying out the blueprint on the kind of rebuilding job he wants to do at Arsenal.
But the Gunners boss knows it won’t be as simple as a cut-and-paste of the ways Klopp has built success at the Reds, who became Premier League champions on Thursday night.
“Liverpool is a great example to see that it is possible,” said Arteta. “But it takes a lot of work and a lot of the right decisions from everyone.”
“First of all, you need belief in what you are doing. And then see that you are all aligned in that belief.”
“From there you start to make right decisions, in terms of recruitment, to get a coach who identifies the philosophy. That is needed for that football club, who the fans believe in.”
“And then you need players who are 100 per cent committed to that manager, to that football club, to give their best all the time. It does not matter what.”
