Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken out on Mikel Arteta ahead of Manchester United vs Arsenal. The Red Devils are preparing to face the Gunners in the Premier League on Sunday, November 1st.
"Any manager would need some time to put his principles and plays," said Solskjaer in his pre-match press conference.
"He’s already won a trophy with them and you can see what he’s doing, you can see he’s got his own ideas and that he’s also worked under a top manager before, definitely.
"When you’re at the start of your career as a manager and you can start winning already it’s a great foundation to build from and they’ve really found a manager who wants the best for the club."
He added: "When I played it was between us and Arsenal to win the league, that was a very fierce rivalry, there are all sorts of stories about what happened, that’s passion, the excitement, importance of those games - we knew if we beat Arsenal and we took six points off them that’d’ be us winning the league and vice versa.
"Some unbelievable games, some fond memories and some bad memories, there is still a rivalry and history but now we don’t think about them or anyone as our rivals, we just need to put points on the board and it’s so early anyway."
Arsenal are currently 11th in the league table, while United are 15th.
