EPL 2022: Mikel Arteta Being Eyed As Potential Replacement for Pep Guardiola

There’s just no rest when it comes to the football world. In the most recent Manchester City news, the football club is invested in looking for a new replacement for current manager Pep Guardiola. One of their choices is Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, who has been busy in the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola and Arteta had been colleagues before, the latter winning accolades left and right before taking over the job at the Emirates. With Guardiola’s future with the club uncertain, Arteta is in the running to replace his former boss in his job.

A Winning Partnership

Manchester City once had the benefit of having Guardiola and Arteta in their corner. Once Unai Emery was sacked, however, Arteta returned to Arsenal to accept the head coaching position. It was then that the football live scores became interesting again, even as he posted below-par averages in the season.

There is a list of Arteta’s accomplishments while leading Arsenal. He has won the Community Shield as well as the FA Cup. The lackadaisical season notwithstanding, Arteta also has his sights focused on a miracle season for Arsenal as he is making an impressive push towards silverware in the Champions League.

Guardiola’s Once and Future Successor

During his time with the Sky Blues, though, Arteta was thought of as being groomed to replace Guardiola. 12BET sportsbook analysts have been trying to ascertain this and the interest remains, even if Arteta is leading a rival club.

There have been reports pinpointing the 39-year-old Arsenal manager as one of the candidates of for the job. He has also declined sitting down with his current club to discuss a new deal, where his focus is on achieving success this year—whether with another club, that remained to be seen. He has settled down in London, however, and is still open to continuing at the Emirates.

Will Guardiola Part Ways with the Sky Blues?

Despite the rumors pointing towards Arteta taking over the reins at City for Guardiola, the Premier League champions are still adamant at keeping their current manager. A curious case, however, points towards the length of contract of both managers. Both have contracts that run out at the same time. It will be an interesting Champions League table should Guardiola depart and Arteta come in to replace him.
