Manchester City playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne, has said he is not surprised to see Mikel Arteta do well as Arsenal’s manager.
Arteta left the Etihad to take up the job with the Gunners three years ago.
Arsenal have begun this campaign impressively and sit at the top of the Premier League, one point ahead of City.
When asked if he was surprised to see Arsenal thrive under Arteta, De Bruyne told Sky Sports: “No, not really." Obviously, I see a lot of similarities with the way we play, but that’s always been his style.
“When he stopped playing and he had the opportunity to come here, I think it was a good learning school and, obviously, we had great years."
“I saw an evolution from the beginning of Mikel to after three years when he left.
At the beginning, he was adapting, but then he was getting more and more into his role. We also saw he had a lot of ambition and when an opportunity came, he took it.
“It’s nice to see that he got the time from Arsenal. I’m happy for him that it’s going well. They’re playing really, really, really good football. Hopefully, they will just not be good enough for us. "
