Willian believes Mikel Arteta is destined to be “considered one of the best managers in the world” and has all chances to win trophies with Arsenal “sooner rather than later”.

Arteta took charge of the Gunners last December in place of Unai Emery. Since his arrival, he managed to lead the squad to the FA Cup win, while the team is still growing, sitting in 11th place of the Premier League table.

And Willian, who made a move to the Emirates Stadium during the summer transfer window, has shared his thoughts on Arteta.

“He’ll be a top manager, I’ve no doubt about it,” he told FourFourTwo.

“The potential is there, as is the ambition. In a few years he’ll be considered one of the best managers in the Premier League – and the world.

“Obviously, you must win trophies to be considered one of the best, and it will happen for him sooner rather than later.

“I’m impressed with the way he talks and explains his tactical thoughts – he’s quick to read the game and make adjustments when needed.

“It’s been fantastic to train under him so far and I’m learning a lot.”
