Arsene Wenger has thrown his support behind Mikel Arteta for the Arsenal job.
The departing Gunners manager believes that Arteta has all the qualities that are needed to take on the job.
It is rumored that Arteta is the man who will succeed Wenger. Many fans are apprehensive about the appointment given his lack of experience.
"He has all the qualities to do the job, yes and I think as well he is one of the favourites," he told beinSPORTS.
"He was a leader, and he has a good passion for the game and he knows the club well, he knows what is important at the club and he was captain of the club. Why Not?"
